Extrinsic innervation of the rat pancreas: demonstration of vagal sensory neurones in the rat by retrograde tracing.

Abstract

The extrinsic innervation of the rat pancreas was examined using retrograde tracing with the fluorescent dye True Blue. Retrogradely-labelled cell bodies were seen bilaterally in the nodose ganglia, and in the spinal ganglia at levels T6-L2. Labelled cells were also seen in the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus, the nucleus ambiguus and the coeliac ganglion. Our results provide new and direct evidence for a vagal sensory innervation of the pancreas.
