BACKGROUND This work was undertaken to study the prostate neuroendocrine cells (PNEC) during the post-natal development of rats. METHODS Forty male Wistar rats (pre-pubertals, pubertals, young, and aged adults) were used for immunohistochemistry of chromogranin A (cgA), serotonin (SER), and protein gene product 9.5 (PGP9.5). They were also evaluated for numerical cell density (NV SER) and PNEC number per prostate (N SER). Five additional young adult rats were used for a RT-PCR study (mRNA cgA… CONTINUE READING
