Immunocytochemistry shows that insulin-containing cells are densely innervated by galanin-positive nerve fibres in the Brockmann body of two teleost, the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) and the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). The insulin-like cells are also innervated by a few nerve fibres that contain PACAP-like peptide and occasional fibres that contain VIP-like peptide. The glucagon-like cells are only partly innervated by fibres positive to galanin-, VIP- and PACAP-like peptides.
