Chromaffin tissue and sources of catecholamines in the vertebrate heart

  • V. A. Gobyrin

Morphology and Pathomorphology


The myocardium of all the classes of vertebrate animals, excluding the cyclostomata, contains no chromaffin tissue. Muscular fibers of the cyclostomata heart are slightly chromaffin reactive. No chromaffin elements are contained in the anervous heart of chick embryos.

In the authors' opinion one of the sources of catecholamines in the heart is the muscular tissue itself.
