• ganglia
  • Influences of HSCR-smooth-muscle-protein extracts upon isolated myenteric plexus cells, dissociated dorsal root ganglia and NCSC were studied in vitro to investigate the quality of this microenvironment effects. (uzh.ch)
  • Myenteric plexus and dissociated dorsal root ganglia (DRG) cultures, as well as NCSCs were exposed to protein extracts derived from ganglionic and aganglionic HSCR segments, and their effect upon neurite outgrowth, survival, and branching was evaluated. (uzh.ch)
  • Ganglia from the plexus extend into the muscularis mucosae and to the mucous membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • neuron
  • The diameters of neuron perikaryons of the myenteric plexus were measured on paraffin sections in a ring from the sigmoid in Chagas' disease patients, 17 with and 10 without megacolon and in 10 non-chagasic controls. (semanticscholar.org)
  • We developed a computational model of a Dogiel type II myenteric neuron that successfully reproduces all experimentally observed phenomena and highlights the differential roles of Nav1.5 and Nav1.9 in the control of excitability. (jneurosci.org)
  • synaptosomes
  • This requirement of extracellular Ca2+ for veratridine-induced release of ATP from isolated myenteric varicosities contrasted strikingly with that for brain synaptosomes, where the release of ATP induced by veratridine was increased rather than decreased in a Ca2+-free medium. (jneurosci.org)
  • Synaptosomes can also be isolated from tissues other than brain such as spinal cord, retina, myenteric plexus or the electric ray electric organ. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • A number of different substances can be found in the enteroglial cells of the myenteric plexus that appear to play important roles in the activity of the nerve center. (fsu.edu)
  • These cells are connected to the smooth muscle via gap junctions and the myenteric plexus. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscle
  • For instance, the heavily studied neuropeptide known as substance P is present in the myenteric plexus in significant levels and may help facilitate the production of saliva, smooth muscle contractions, and other tissue responses. (fsu.edu)
