Immunohistochemistry and cholinesterase histochemistry were used to evaluate the structure and neurotransmitter content of the ganglionated plexuses of the human, canine, and opossum (Monodelphis domestica) gallbladders. In each species, the ganglionated plexus consisted of small (mean≈4 neurons/ganglion), irregularly dispersed ganglia that were interconnected by bundles of nerve fibers. The density of ganglia was about ten-fold higher in the opossum than in the human or the dog. Immunostaining… CONTINUE READING
