Abstract

Sympathetic trunk ganglia (STG) neurons projecting to the urinary bladder trigone of the boar were studied by coupling retrograde tracing Fast Blue (FB) and double-labeling immunofluorescence methods. FB-positive neurons were localized in the L1-S3 STG. Immunohistochemical staining revealed the catecholaminergic (tyrosine hydroxylase-/dopamine beta hydroxylase immunoreactivity) phenotype of the majority of FB-positive neurons, which also preferentially expressed neuropeptide Y. In addition, some of the FB-positive dopaminergic perikarya were immunoreactive for calcitonin gene-related peptide, substance P, vasoactive intestinal peptide, vesicular acetylcholine-transporter, neuronal nitric oxide synthase, somatostatin, and leu-enkephalin. Functional hypotheses have been formulated.
