Cholinergic elements in the zebrafish central nervous system: Histochemical and immunohistochemical analysis
TLDR
The cholinergic/cholinoceptive system of the zebrafish CNS was analyzed by using choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) immunohistochemistry and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) histochemistry in the brain, retina, and spinal cord to identify AChE labeling. Expand
Teratogenic effects of ethanol exposure on zebrafish visual system development.
TLDR
The use of zebrafish EK strain is a suitable in vivo vertebrate model system for analyzing the teratogenic effect of ethanol during vertebrate visual system morphogenesis as it relates to both cyclopia and FAS. Expand
Topographical distribution of NADPH‐diaphorase activity in the central nervous system of the frog, Rana perezi
TLDR
Evidence that nitric oxide may be involved in novel tasks, primarily related to forebrain functions, that are already present in amphibians is provided by histochemically investigating the distribution of ND and catecholamines in the frog Rana perezi. Expand
A genome-wide association study for myopia and refractive error identifies a susceptibility locus at 15q25
TLDR
The identification of a susceptibility locus for refractive error on 15q25 will be important in characterizing the molecular mechanism responsible for the most common cause of visual impairment. Expand
Nitric oxide synthase in the brain of a urodele amphibian (Pleurodeles waltl) and its relation to catecholaminergic neuronal structures
TLDR
Double labeling techniques revealed an extensive codistribution of neurons with NOS and catecholamines in the urodele brain but actual colocalization in the same cells was never observed. Expand
Distribution of parvalbumin immunoreactivity in the brain of the tench (Tinca tinca L., 1758)
TLDR
Only a restricted population of PV‐containing neurons was GABA‐immunoreactive in the tench, demonstrating that this calcium‐binding protein cannot be considered a marker for GABAergic elements in the teleost brain. Expand
Distribution of calbindin D‐28k in the entorhinal, perirhinal, and parahippocampal cortices of the macaque monkey
TLDR
The entorhinal cortex exhibits the most striking gradient of CB staining such that the most anterior and medial portions are most strongly labeled, whereas posterior and lateral areas exhibit only weak labeling. Expand
NADPH‐diaphorase active and calbindin D‐28k‐immunoreactive neurons and fibers in the olfactory bulb of the hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus)
TLDR
Different and more complex ND and CaBP staining patterns in the hedgehog olfactory bulb than those previously described in rodents are indicated, including the presence of specific, chemically and morphologically defined new neuronal types. Expand
Cloning, molecular characterization, and distribution of a gene homologous to delta opioid receptor from zebrafish (Danio rerio).
TLDR
This is the first molecular evidence of the presence of the delta opioid receptor in a non-mammalian species and suggests that it has been highly conserved throughout vertebrate evolution. Expand
Development of the cholinergic system in the brain and retina of the zebrafish
TLDR
The early presence of ChAT immunolabeling suggests an important neuromodulator role for acetylcholine in the first developmental stages of zebrafish brain and retina during ontogeny. Expand
