Distribution and morphology of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)cells in the digestive tract of Sphenomorphus iudieus were investigated with specific anti-5-HT antiserum by using immunohistochemical method. The results showed that 5-HT positive cells distributed throughout the digestive tract with the highest density in the pylorus, and the second highest density in the oesophagus and rectum, and the lowest density in the jejunum. The 5-HT cells were in various shapes, such as round, oval, spindle-like, wedge-like or irregular in shape.Most spindle-like cells had processes. The results suggest that the distribution and morphology of 5-HT cells in the digestive tract are likely consistent with their function in S. iudieus.
