The vesicular monoamine transporters VMAT1 and VMAT2 are essential components of monoaminergic neurons and endocrine cells whose expression in development may provide insight into lineage pathways for chemical coding in the diffuse neuroendocrine system. Thus, the brain is a compartment in which only monoaminergic neurons are generated, the gut epithelium generates only endocrine monoamine-containing cells, and the neural crest produces both autonomic monoaminergic neurons and endocrine… CONTINUE READING
