Neuroepithelial bodies (NEBs) are believed to be connected with one of the known types of airway receptors. The present studies determined whether NEB afferents are pulmonary slowly adapting stretch receptors (SARs). NEBs are immunoreactive with antibodies against protein gene product (PGP) 9.5 and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), whereas SARs are reactive with antibody to Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase. Using histochemical staining in combination with confocal microscopy, we compared the morphology… CONTINUE READING
