Projections of peptide-containing neurons in rat colon.


The distribution, origin and projections of nerve fibers containing vasoactive intestinal peptide, substance P, neuropeptide Y, galanin, gastrin-releasing peptide, calcitonin gene-related peptide, somatostatin or enkephalin were studied in the midcolon of the rat by immunocytochemistry and immunochemistry. Most of these nerve fibers had an intramural origin… (More)
