[Demonstration of neuropeptides in cultured neuroretinal cells of chick embryo].

[Article in French]


Immunoreactive neuropeptides have been found in cultures of neuroretina cells obtained from 7 day Chick embryos. Methionine-enkephalin and thyroliberin (TRH) were present in a large number of neurons, while somatostatin, beta-melanotropin (MSH) and alpha-endorphin were occasionally seen in a few neurons. In cultures devoid of neurons and probably made of Müller (astroglial) cells, methionine-enkephalin, alpha-MSH and TRH were each detected in 60 to 80% of the cells. Immunoreactive methionine enkephalin was also localized in Müller cells in retina sections of 10 and 20 day old embryos.
