Abstract

A light- and electron-microscopic immunocytochemical study on the localization of 5-hydroxytryptamine in Cyanea lamarcki revealed a reaction product in the epidermal gland cells surrounding the nematocyst clusters. The closely related scyphozoan medusa Cyanea capillata lacked a reaction product in the similar mucus-producing gland cells. Earlier conflicting views on the presence and localization of 5-hydroxytryptamine in coelenterates can thus be due to large species differences. It can be stated that 5-hydroxytryptamine is lacking in the venom of Cyanea.
