The NeuN protein is localized in nuclei and perinuclear cytoplasm of most of the neurons in the central nervous system of mammals. Monoclonal antibodies to the NeuN protein have been actively used in the immunohistochemical research of neuronal differentiation to assess the functional state of neurons in norm and pathology for more than 20 years. Recently,(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the distribution of cholinergic and nitroxidergic neurons in the spinal cord (SC) of adult and newborn rats. Using immunohistochemical demonstration of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) and nitric oxide synthase (NOS), cervical portions of SC were studied in newborn (n=5) and adult (n=5) Wistar rats. It was found that(More)
The aim of this research was to study the expression of vimentin, one of the intermediate filament proteins, and S100 protein in the cells of developing dorsal root ganglion in prenatal ontogenesis in Wistar rat embryos (n=22) on 12-19 days of development and in newborn rats (n=6). Immunohistochemical staining methods were used to study the formation of rat(More)
The neural apparatus and the endocrine part of the pancreas was studied in Wistar rats aged 3-4 and 19 months (n = 24) using the immunohistochemical reactions for synaptophysin (Syn), tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and protein gene product 9.5 (PGP 9.5). Since Syn and PGP 9.5 are highly selective in detection of pancreatic islet (PI) endocrinocytes, it was(More)
The article presents the information on the modern modifications of Perls' reaction including diaminobenzidine enhancement according to R. Meguro (for various tissues). M.A. Smith (for nervous tissue), S.M. Levine (for detection of iron in oligodendrocytes and myelinated nervous fibers), and our own modification for visualization of the nucleolar iron. The(More)
This paper compares the results of application of various methods of histochemical and immunohistochemical staining of mast cells (MC) in human myocardium after formalin fixation and paraffin embedding of the material. It was shown that the optimal methods for description of their structure were toluidine blue staining and and Giemsa stain, while alcian(More)
The distribution of iron ions in the cerebellum of 15 human subjects aged 20-89-years was studied using highly-sensitive variant of Perls' histochemical technique. Increased iron content was found in the white matter and in Purkinje cells. In 10 out of 15 cases examined iron was detected in the nuclei of Purkinje cells, while in some cases iron was found in(More)
The article presents highly reproducible and inexpensive protocol for simultaneous demonstration of glutamate decarboxylase (GAD67), the key enzyme of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) synthesis and synaptophysin (SYP), a marker protein of synaptic vesicles using confocal laser microscopy. In the cerebellar cortex, GAD labels Purkinje cells and pinceaux in(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the distribution pattern of cellular contacts protein beta-catenin in the choroid plexus and ependyma of lateral ventricles of the brain. The study was conducted on frontal sections of the brain of Wistar rats (n = 10) using polyclonal antibodies against beta-catenin. The obtained preparations were analyzed by(More)
