The regional distribution of 3 mammalian tachykinins (substance P, neurokinin alpha and neurokinin beta) in the rat spinal cord and related structures was investigated using a method of radioimmunoassay combined with high performance liquid chromatography. Substance P and neurokinin alpha were found to be distributed in a very similar manner with fairly constant molar ratios i.e. ratios of substance P to neurokinin alpha were 3.69 in the dorsal root ganglia, 3.49 in the dorsal root and 3.09 in… CONTINUE READING
