In the parotid gland, double immunostaining showed the perivascular and most of the periductal neuropeptide Y (NPY)-immunoreactive nerve fibres to contain dopamine beta-hydroxylase, while the majority of periacinar NPY-fibres contained vasoactive intestinal peptide. Sympathectomy caused a marked depletion of perivascular and periductal NPY-fibres, leaving periacinar NPY-fibres less affected. Following combined sympathectomy and parasympathectomy, only a few NPY-fibres persisted. The… Expand
