Preganglionic sympathetic neurons projecting to the superior cervical ganglion are innervated by nerve fibers containing classical neurotransmitters as well as neuropeptides. In this study we examined the possible participation of a novel peptide, secretoneurin (a cleavage product of secretogranin II), in regulation of sympathetic outflow to head and neck by using a retrograde labelling-technique combined with immunohistochemistry. In addition, the coexistence of secretoneurin with substance P… CONTINUE READING
