Alterations of neurochemical expression of the coeliac-superior mesenteric ganglion complex (CSMG) neurons supplying the prepyloric region of the porcine stomach following partial stomach resection.

Publication date: March 2016 Source:Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy, Volume 72 Author(s): Katarzyna Palus, Jarosław Całka The purpose of the present study was to determine the response of the porcine coeliac-superior mesenteric ganglion complex (CSMG) neurons projecting to the prepyloric area of the porcine stomach to peripheral neuronal damage following partial stomach resection. To identify the sympathetic neurons innervating the studied area of stomach, the neuronal retrograde tracer Fast Blue (FB) was applied to control and partial stomach resection (RES) groups. On the 22nd day after FB injection, following laparotomy, the partial resection of the previously FB-injected stomach prepyloric area was performed in animals of RES group. On the 28th day, all animals were re-anaesthetized and euthanized. The CSMG complex was then collected and processed for double-labeling immunofluorescence. In control animals, retrograde-labelled perikarya were immunoreactive to tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), dopamine β-hydroxylase (DβH), neuropeptide Y (NPY) and galanin (GAL). Partial stomach resection decreased the numbers of FB-positive neurons immunopositive for TH and DβH. However, the strong increase of NPY and GAL expression, as well as de novo-synthesis of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) and leu5-Enkephalin (LENK) was noted in studied neurons. Furthermore, FB-positive neurons in all pigs were surrounded by a network of cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcr...

Abstract Dipyrone (metamizole), acting through its main metabolites 4-methyl-amino-antipyrine and 4-amino-antipyrine, has established analgesic, antipyretic, and spasmolytic pharmacological effects, which are mediated by poorly known mechanisms. In rats, intravenously administered dipyrone delays gastric emptying (GE) of liquids with the participation of capsaicin-sensitive afferent fibers. This effect seems to be mediated by norepinephrine originating from the sympathetic nervous system but not from the superior celiac-mesenteric ganglion complex, which activates β2-adrenoceptors. In rats, in contrast to non...

Abstract The present study was designed to determine the distribution, morphology and co-localization of calbindin-D28k (CB) with other neuroactive substances in the coeliac-cranial mesenteric ganglion complex (CCMG) neurons supplying the prepyloric region of the porcine stomach. In all animals, a median laparotomy was performed and the fluorescent retrograde neuronal tracer Fast Blue was injected into the wall of the stomach prepyloric area. On the 28th day, all animals were euthanized and the CCMG complexes were then collected and processed for double-labelling immunofluorescence for CB and tyrosine hydroxylase ...

In conclusion, these results suggest that the nerve–ovarian connections, which are established during infantile development, are necessary for the accurate response of the ovary to sympathetic stimulation.

ConclusionUptake in coeliac and stellate ganglia is a frequent finding on PSMA‐HBED PET/CT imaging. Often this uptake can be sufficiently high to cause potential diagnostic confusion. It is important to be aware of this physiologic uptake to avoid incorrect diagnosis of metastatic prostate carcinoma.

Conclusion Present result suggests that in rats with EV-induced PCOS the CSMG serves as communication channel between the vagus nerve and sympathetic innervation and this communication is related to the persistence of EV-induced PCOS.

Abstract Agmatine suppresses peripheral sympathetic tone by modulating Cav2.2 channels in peripheral sympathetic neurons. However, the detailed cellular signaling mechanism underlying the agmatine-induced Cav2.2 inhibition remains unclear. Therefore, in the present study, we investigated the electrophysiological mechanism for the agmatine-induced inhibition of Cav2.2 current (ICav2.2) in rat celiac ganglion (CG) neurons. Consistent with previous reports, agmatine inhibited ICav2.2 in a VI manner. The agmatine-induced inhibition of the ICav2.2 current was also almost completely hindered by the blockade of the imida...

This study was designed to determine neurochemical properties of the coeliac-superior mesenteric ganglion (CSMG) neurons supplying the prepyloric area of the porcine stomach in physiological state and following experimentally induced hyperacidity. To localize sympathetic neurons innervating the studied area of stomach, the neuronal retrograde tracer Fast Blue (FB) was applied to control animals and hydrochloric acid infusion (HCl) groups. After 23 days, animals of the HCl group were reintroduced into a state of general anesthesia and intragastrically given 5 mL/kg of body weight of 0.25 M aqueous solution of ...

517Objectives The prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is highly expressed in prostate cancer (PC) cells and can be imaged using 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC PET. However, there are reports describing non-specific uptake both in non-prostatic benign (such as in the sympathetic nervous system) and malignant non-PC lesions. The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the PSMA-ligand uptake in PET in cervical, coeliac and sacral ganglia as a pitfall for lymph node metastases (LN-mets) in prostate cancer imaging.Methods 308 patients who underwent a 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC PET (combined with a diagnostic CT) between October 2012...

Braz J Med Biol Res. 2016 Mar;49(3) Authors: Vinagre AM, Collares EF Abstract There is evidence for participation of peripheral β-adrenoceptors in delayed liquid gastric emptying (GE) induced in rats by dipyrone (Dp), 4-aminoantipyrine (AA), and antipyrine (At).
