The cellular uptake of 5-hydroxytryptamine in the rat lung in vivo--a histochemical study.

Abstract

The cellular uptake of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin) in the rat lung was studied in vivo after bolus injection of the amine (1 mg/100 g b.w.i.v.). The cells responsible for the 5-HT uptake were visualized by fluorescence microscopy according to the Hillarp-Falck technique and further identified as mast cells by Astra Blau staining. The quantitative… (More)
