Immunocytochemical Localization of Substance P-Like Immunoreactivity in the Human Hypothalamus
Substance P has been found by immunohistochemistry to be largely distributed throughout the central nervous system in several species. This peptide has also been shown to exert some neuroendocrine effects when injected into the brain, such as stimulation of growth hormone and prolactin secretion . In order to obtain more information about the role of substance P in neuroendocrine function in man, we have proceeded to the immunohistochemical localization of this peptide in the human hypothalamus.
