VIP (vasoactive intestinal polypeptide)--immunoreactive innervation of the portal vein

Jarhult, J; Fahrenkrug, J; Hellstrand, Per LU and Uddman, R (1982) In Cell and Tissue Research 221(3). p.617-624
Abstract
Nerve fibres displaying immunoreactivity for vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) were found in the wall of the portal vein in cats, guinea pigs, rats and mice. In whole-mount preparations a sparse network of VIP fibres was seen in the vessel wall. Electrical field stimulation of the rat portal vein in vitro caused a significant release of VIP. The results suggest that VIP ergic nerve fibres play a role in the regulation of portal blood flow.
