Discrete cells containing neurotensin, as shown by immunofluorescence, have been observed in the lower portion of the dog ileum. This implies that neurotensin may be synthesized in the small intestine and may be involved in local regulation of intestinal functions. Neurotensin is a peptide characterized originally in the hypothalamus.
