Abstract

Vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP)- and substance P (SP)-like immunoreactivities were examined in the tongue of the guinea pig by using the double immunofluorescence method. Coexistence of VIP-and SP-like immunoreactivities was suggested in many nerve fibers innervating the lingual salivary glands, as well as in a few intralingual ganglionic cells.
