Abstract

In the dog ileum, neurotensin cells stained with immunofluorescence or immunoperoxidase proved distinct from argentaffin (EC) cells, glucagon immunoreactive (GLI) cells and pancreatic peptide immunoreactive (PP) cells. Neurotensin cells showed various degrees of reactivity with Grimelius'silver. With electron microscopy, besides EC cells, large granule cells with a thin peripheral rim of Grimelius-reactivity (L cells) and large granule cells with variable Grimelius-reactivity of the core (N cells) were found. On distributive grounds, L cells were identified with GLI cells and N cells were interpreted as neurotensin cells.
