Abstract

The changes in neuron-specific enolase (NSE) immunoreactivity of Merkel cells in the frog taste organ were investigated up to 5 months after resection of the glossopharyngeal nerve. Even at 5 months after denervation, the denervated Merkel cells exhibited an immunoreaction with NSE antiserum.
