Taken together with the knowledge that blood-borne factors gain ready access to nodose ganglion cell bodies, it is possible that circulating AII and AVP may contribute to the etiology of renovascular hypertension via actions on vagal afferent cell bodies.
In addition to the tissues listed in the Table, the jejunum, lateral retropharyngeal lymph node, respiratory epithelium, triceps muscle, cranial cervical ganglion, nodose ganglion, facial nerve, trigeminal ganglion, and sciatic nerve have all been screened by IHC in the [PrP.sup.Sc]-positive animals.

These cells occur in several body locations such as the carotid body, aortic body, nodose ganglion of the vagus nerve, ciliary ganglion in the orbit, pancreas, bodies on the internal jugular vein below the ear, and glomus jugulare located at the recurrent branch of the glossopharyangeal nerve (CAPEN, 2002; 2007).
Within 24 hours of ligating the sciatic nerve, there is a transient increase in MOR immuno-reactivity in the cell bodies of DRG and nodose ganglion neurons, and in the sciatic nerve stump proximal to the ligature (43).
Peristome well developed; exostome yellowish, brownish towards base, lower outside ornamentation cross-striolate, upper outside ornamentation papillose, border broad, widened where ornamentation changes from cross-striolate to papillose; endostome hyaline to yellowish, basal membrane high, about 35-40% of endostome height, segments perforated, papillose, cilia 2-3, long, appendiculate at least in upper part of cilia, otherwise nodose. Lid conical, obtuse and apiculate.
Peristome well developed; exostome yellowish, lower outside ornamentation dotted (reticulate at high magnification), upper outside ornamentation papillose, border broad; endostome hyaline to yellowish, basal membrane high, 40-45% of endostome height, segments narrowly perforated, papillose, strongly papillose in upper part, cilia 2-3, long, nodose. Lid conical.
Retrograde tracing studies indicate that 75% of the nodose ganglion neurons and 82% of the DRG neurons projecting to the rat stomach express ASIC3-like immunoreactivity [125].
(3) Males and females are equally affected by vagal schwannomas, which are thought to arise most frequently near the nodose (inferior) ganglion.
