Merkel cells (MCs) are specialized sensory cells widely distributed in the epithelia of vertebrates. A variable immunohistochemical pattern of neuronal and neurotransmitter markers has been demonstrated in MCs of several species including man. In the present study, we investigated the expression of neurochemical markers in a selected population of human cutaneous MCs by immunofluorescence. The structural neural proteins protein gene product 9.5 and neuron-specific enolase were found to be the… CONTINUE READING
