Forebrain neurogenesis persists throughout life in the rodent subventricular zone (SVZ) and hippocampal dentate gyrus (DG). Several strategies have been employed to eliminate adult neurogenesis and thereby determine whether depleting adult-born neurons disrupts specific brain functions, but some approaches do not specifically target neural progenitors. We(More)
It is now well established that neurogenesis in the rodent subgranular zone of the hippocampal dentate gyrus continues throughout adulthood. Neuroblasts born in the dentate subgranular zone migrate into the granule cell layer, where they differentiate into neurons known as dentate granule cells. Suppression of neurogenesis by irradiation or genetic ablation(More)
The mitral cell is the primary output neuron and central relay in the olfactory bulb of vertebrates. The morphology of these cells has been studied extensively in mammalian systems and to a lesser degree in teleosts. This study uses retrograde tract tracing and other techniques to characterize the morphology and distribution of mitral cells in the olfactory(More)
Promoters with high levels of ubiquitous expression are of significant utility in the production of transgenic animals and cell lines. One such promoter is derived from the human cytomegalovirus immediate early (CMV-IE) gene. We sought to ascertain if the simian CMV-IE promoter (sCMV), used extensively in non-mammalian vertebrate research, also directs(More)
The distribution of ionotropic glutamate receptor subunit 4 (iGluR4) was examined in both normal and deafferented olfactory bulbs of adult zebrafish, Danio rerio. With the exception of the olfactory nerve layer, there was extensive labeling with antibodies to iGluR4 in the olfactory bulbs, specifically in juxtaglomerular cell bodies and their processes.(More)
The morphology and distribution of ruffed cells was examined in the olfactory bulb of adult zebrafish, Danio rerio, using retrograde tract tracing and Golgi-Kopsch techniques. The neurons had variable-shaped soma that ranged in size from 7 to 15 microm in diameter. There was an obvious protrusion of the membrane, a ruff, near the initial portion of the(More)
