The caudal neurosecretory system (CANS) is a group of neurones in the tail of most gnathostome fishes. However, despite its prevalence, its functional significance is poorly understood.   Recent information on the caudal neurosecretory system (urophysis) is collated, with special reference to cellular biology including neural relations, activity and chemistry of the biological principles associated with the urophysis, pharmacological analysis of the receptors for these principles, and their possible functions in a physiological by: The caudal neurosecretory system (CNSS) of fish was first defined over 70 years ago yet despite much investigation, a clear physiological role has yet to be elucidated. Although the CNSS structure is as yet thought to be confined to piscine species, the secreted peptides, urotensins I and II (UI and UII), have been detected in a number of Cited by:
