Abstract

The smooth muscle of the monkey oviduct is similar to that described for other species and organs. Cell to cell contacts, in the form of simple appositions, were numerous. The adrenergic nerve supply was sparse, and close contacts between nerve and muscle were extremely rare. There was no difference in the density of innervation between the isthmus and ampulla. The rabbit appeared to have a greater density of innervation than the monkey.
