The distribution and origin of nerve fibers immunoreactive for substance P and neurokinin A in the anterior buccal gland of the rat

Abstract

The distribution and origin of substance P (SP) and neurokinin A (NKA) were studied in rat in the anterior buccal glands, which are minor mucous salivary glands. Indirect immunofluorescence staining showed moderate SP and NKA innervation of salivary acini and interlobular ducts, whereas blood vessels were more sparsely innervated, and there were few nerve… (More)
