5-Hydroxytryptamine-immunoreactive nerve fibers in the rat and porcine prevertebral sympathetic ganglia: effect of precursor loading and relation to catecholaminergic neurons.


PMID 7478220

Abstract

Localization of 5-hydroxytryptamine immunoreactivity was studied in the rat coeliac-superior mesenteric ganglion complex and in the porcine superior and inferior mesenteric ganglia by the indirect immunofluorescence technique. In normal rats, only 5-hydroxytryptamine immunoreactive SIF cells were seen in the coeliac-superior mesenteric ganglion complex. In the rats, pretreated with a 5-hydroxytryptamine precursor, L-tryptophan, and with a monoamine oxidase inhibitor, nialamide, a large number of 5-hydroxytryptamine-immunoreactive nerve fiber terminals were detected. In normal porcine superior and inferior mesenteric ganglia, intense 5-hydroxytryptamine immunoreactivity was found in numerous nerve fibers which were located around tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive principal neurons. The origin and function of these fibers are discussed.
