Sensory receptors in the airways: neurochemical coding of smooth muscle-associated airway receptors and pulmonary neuroepithelial body innervation.

Abstract

Mainly due to the lack of conclusive morphological data, correlation between functionally and morphologically defined lung receptors has so far been unsatisfactory. In the present study, multiple immunocytochemical stainings with a panel of markers for (mechanso)sensory nerve fibres were performed in order to visualise putative receptor terminals in rat… (More)
