T1 : Localization of neuropeptides and receptors

Description

This task aims to investigate the neuro-anatomical relationships between ligand/receptor couples selected in WP3 by establishing distribution of neuropeptides and receptor putative couples in our models A. anguilla,  A. japonica, S. officinalis, C. gigas and E. ancora. We seek to precisely characterize  neuropeptide producing cells and their potential target tissues. Main methods used are immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization.
