The specific binding of 125I-labeled vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) to brain membranes from the forebrain and hindbrain regions of 2 to 37-day postnatal rats was measured. In both regions of the brain, VIP binding was low but detectable two days after birth and rose markedly between postnatal days 7 and 17. This increase in VIP binding with age… CONTINUE READING
