Neuroepithelial Bodies in the Lungs in Rats

We report here our studies of neuroepithelial bodies (NEB) in the lungs in healthy Wistar rats (n = 12). Immunocytochemical reactions for synaptophysin identified NEB and similar immunopositive nerve terminals. NEB in the lungs in rats were found to be consistently present elements. In contrast to diffuse neuroendocrine elements, these structures were characterized by grouped cells. Some NEB lacked efferent innervation.
