Presence of mRNA for vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) and its receptor in the rat inner ear.


Although mechanisms regulating inner ear fluid have not been yet elucidated, control of blood flow has been thought to be of great importance. Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) was the first neuropeptide demonstrated in cerebrovascular nerves. To study the possible role of VIP in regulation of inner ear fluid, we investigated the presence of mRNA for… (More)
