Abstract

The distribution and relative frequencies of the endocrine cells were studied immunohistochemically in the common pancreatic ducts of the Korean native goat with serotonin, glucagon, insulin, BCG, BPP and somatostatin antisera. Serotonin-, glucagon-, BCG-, BPP- and somatostatin-immunoreactive cells were detected in the basal portion of the mucosal gland in the common pancreatic ducts of the Korean native goat but insulin-immunoreactive cells were not detected. The function of these immunoreactive cells and appearance of other immunoreactive cells in the common pancreatic ducts of the Korean native goat were remains unknown.
