The distribution of argininosuccinate synthetase (ASS)-like immunoreactive neurons in the myenteric plexus of the rat alimentary tract were immunocytochemically studied using whole-mount tissues. The present study revealed ASSlike immunoreactive meshworks of ganglia and interconnecting nerve strands in the myenteric plexus of almost all parts of the alimentary tract. ASS-like immunoreactive neurons constituted about 11% of the myenteric cell.
