Abstract

A close spatial relationship between serotonin-containing mast cells and substance P-containing nerves was shown by immunohistochemistry using a combination of antisera specific for serotonin and substance P. This supports earlier morphological results suggesting an innervation of mast cells and pharmacological studies which postulate an influence of substance P on the release of histamine from mast cells.
