Resumen: The myenteric plexus of the gastrointestinal tract was investigated in the obese diabetic mouse, an animal model of human type 2 diabetes. Sections were immunostained by the avidin-biotin complex method, using a general nerve marker, protein gene product 9.5 (PGP 9.5), as well as antibodies to several important neurotransmitters. Computerized image analysis was used for quantification. When diabetic mice were compared with controls, no difference was found in the density of PGP 9.5-immunoreactive (IR) nerve fibres in antrum, duodenum or colon. In antrum and duodenum, diabetic mice showed a decreased number of vasoactive intestinal peptide (V1P)-IR neurons in myenteric ganglia as well a decreased relative volume density in myenteric plexus (though not significantly in antrum, p=0.073). No difference was found regarding VIP-IR nerves in colon. The volume density of nitric oxide synthase (NOS)-IR nerve fibres was decreased in antrum and duodenum of diabetic mice, whereas no difference was found in colon. The density of galanin-IR neme fibres was decreased in duodenum. Whereas neuropeptide Y (NPY)- and vesicular acetylcholine transporter (VAChT)-IR nerve fibres was increased in density in colon of diabetic mice, no difference was found in antrum and duodenum. Regarding substance P, there was no difference between diabetic and control mice in antrum, duodenum or colon. The present study shows that gut innervation is affected in this animal model of human type 2 diabetes. It is possible that the present findings may have some relevance for the gastrointestinal dysfunctions seen in patients with type 2 diabetes.
