Immunohistochemical coexistence of calcitonin gene-related peptide and substance P in the nerve fibers of the internal gills of bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) larvae


, : Immunohistochemical coexistence of calcitonin gene-related peptide and substance P in the nerve fibers of the internal gills of bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) larvae. Neuroscience Letters 158(1): 59-62

A double-labelling immunofluorescence study of the internal gills of larval bullfrogs revealed coexistence of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and substance P (SP) in the same nerve fibers in the gill tufts. More than about 95% of CGRP fibers showed coexistence of SP, although some fibers contained CGRP without SP. In the branchial muscle, all CGRP fibers demonstrated coexistence of SP. These findings suggest that both CGRP- and SP-containing fibers may use both peptides as neuromodulators of active ion transport and gill movements.

A major gap in our knowledge of plant communities is how much of their volume is occupied by plant material (stem, leaf or reproductive structure). This is basic knowledge and may be crucial for the concept of competition for space. We sampled two...
