• Nitric oxide synthase in the brain of a urodele amphibian (Pleurodeles waltl) and its relation to catecholaminergic neuronal structures. (semanticscholar.org)
  • Several other species, such as Pleurodeles waltl and Echinotriton andersoni, have granular glands concentrated in brightly pigmented regions on the dorsum, and thus we hypothesized that the red dorsal spots of Eastern newts may also possess higher levels of TTX than the surrounding skin.

  • For example, both Pleurodeles waltl and Echinotriton andersoni [ 17 , 18 ] possess lateral ribs that penetrate the epidermis when attacked [ 17 , 19 , 20 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • To gain more insight into the dopaminergic system of amphibians and the evolution of catecholaminergic systems in vertebrates in general, the distribution of dopamine and tyrosine hydroxylase immunoreactivity was studied in the brains of the anuran Rana ridibunda and the urodele Pleurodeles waltlii.

  • Whereas the nucleus accumbens in Rana contains the densest DAi plexus, in Pleurodeles the dopaminergic innervation of the striatum prevails. (google.com)
