The cellular localization of the vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) in the rat digestive tract was investigated with immunohistochemistry. VMAT2-immunoreactivity (IR) was localized to neurons and fibers of enteric and pancreatic ganglia, to processes supplying the gut wall, the pancreas and blood vessels, and to enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells in the gastric corpus, which contained calbindin-IR. Few VMAT2-IR cells were also found in the gastric antrum, but they did not contain gastrin… CONTINUE READING
