The ontogeny of gut innervation in the anuran amphibian Xenopus laevis was studied using immunohistochemistry on sections of whole larvae from NF stages 38–52. Immunoreactivity to acetylated tubulin confirmed the presence of nerve fibres as early as stages 38–39. Actin immunoreactivity was found at stage 41, indicating the presence of smooth muscle cells. Trk-like neurotrophin receptors were occasionally found in nerve fibres as soon as stages 38–39. Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) and… CONTINUE READING
