Ontogeny of somatostatin binding sites in respiratory nuclei of the human brainstem.


The ontogeny of somatostatin binding sites was studied in 16 respiratory nuclei of the human brainstem, from 19 postconceptional weeks to 6 months postnatal, by quantitative autoradiography using [(125)I-Tyr0,DTrp8]S14 as a radioligand. In the early gestational stages (19-21 postconceptional weeks), moderate to high concentrations of [(125)I-Tyr0,DTrp8]S14… (More)
