Morphology of two electrotonically-coupled giant neurosecretory
neurons in the snail.
chorus, the visceral ganglia are associated with the adductor posterior muscle, having neurosecretory
cells located preferentially in the dorsal area (Fig.

neurons and in establishment of pathways for neurohormone transport," International Review of Cytology, vol.
Variant brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) (Met66) alters the intracellular trafficking and activity-dependent secretion of wild-type BDNF in neurosecretory
cells and cortical neurons.
Molecular cloning of endopin 1, a novel serpin localized to neurosecretory
vesicles of chromaffin cells.
cells produce the AVP that is found in peripheral blood.
Prostatic NE cells play a role in homeostasis in the prostate by producing a variety of neurosecretory
products having growth-promoting activities, including serotonin, calcitonin, and parathyroid hormone-related peptides [6, 7].
Chromogranin A, by comparison, is part of the neurosecretory
hormone granules; therefore, evidence of its presence is dependent on the number of vesicles present.

dysfunction," Acta paediatrica Japonica; Overseas edition, vol.
However, typical immunohistochemical markers of neurosecretory
tumors including S-100, neuron-specific enolase, chromogranin, and synaptophysin have not been detected .
ADH deficiency develops only after extensive destruction of the hypothalamic neurosecretory
This interpretation is, obviously, valid for the cases of GHD deriving from neurosecretory
dysfunction and not organic hypothalamus-pituitary diseases, which can be identified in fibromyalgic patients with GHD .
