Rat spinal cord, dorsal root ganglia and skin were investigated employing immunohistochemical technique with specific antisera to neurokinin A and substance P. Neurokinin A-like immunoreactivity was detected in the spinal dorsal horn and skin with a similar distribution pattern as that of substance P-like immunoreactivity. After dorsal root transection a parallell decrease of neurokinin A and substance P-like immunoreactivity was observed in the dorsal horn. Using colchicine pretreatment a… CONTINUE READING
