Substance P is the preferred ligand for the neurokinin 1 (NK1) receptor. In vertebrate retinas, substance P is expressed by amacrine, interplexiform and ganglion cells. Substance P influences the activity of amacrine and ganglion cells and it is reported to evoke dopamine release. We investigated NK1 receptor expression in the rabbit retina using(More)
Glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter in the retina, and most glutamatergic neurons express one of the three known vesicular glutamate transporters (VGLUT1, 2, or 3). However, the expression profiles of these transporters vary greatly in the retina. VGLUT1 is expressed by photoreceptor and bipolar cell terminals, and VGLUT2 appears to be(More)
