The distribution of NADPH-diaphorase (ND) activity was histochemically investigated in the brain of the frog Rana perezi. This technique provides a highly selective labeling of neurons and tracts. In the telencephalon, labeled cells are present in the olfactory bulb, pallial regions, septal area, nucleus of the diagonal band, striatum, and amygdala.(More)
A recent study of the distribution of NADPH-diaphorase (NADPHd) and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) in a turtle brain (Brüning et at. [1994]: J. Comp. Neurol. 348:183-206) has revealed that these enzymes are not only widely distributed throughout the brain, but also seem to be colocalized with other classical neurotransmitters, such as catecholamines and(More)
Recently, the zebrafish has been extensively used for studying the development of the central nervous system (CNS). However, the zebrafish CNS has been poorly analyzed in the adult. The cholinergic/cholinoceptive system of the zebrafish CNS was analyzed by using choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) immunohistochemistry and acetylcholinesterase (AChE)(More)
The neuronal structures with NADPH-diaphorase activity and nitric oxide synthase (NOS) immunoreactivity have been studied in the brain of the urodele amphibian Pleurodeles waltl by means of histochemical and immunocytochemical techniques. Both approaches resulted in the selective labeling of the same neurons and fiber tracts in the brain, except for the(More)
The distribution of reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH)-diaphorase activity was histochemically investigated in the Japanese quail brain. This enzyme is now considered responsible for the synthesis of nitric oxide, a novel neural messenger whose distribution has not been described in the avian brain until now. The histochemical(More)
Postnatally, the Purkinje cell degeneration mutant mice lose the main projecting neurons of the main olfactory bulb (OB): mitral cells (MC). In adult animals, progenitor cells from the rostral migratory stream (RMS) differentiate into bulbar interneurons that modulate MC activity. In the present work, we studied changes in proliferation, tangential(More)
The distribution and morphologic features of calcium-binding protein- (calbindin D-28k, calretinin, neurocalcin, and parvalbumin) immunoreactive elements were studied in the macaque monkey olfactory bulb by using specific antibodies and the avidin-biotin-immunoperoxidase method. A characteristic laminar pattern of stained elements was observed for each(More)
By using intratissue injections of colchicine and an indirect immunoperoxidase technique, we studied the distribution of cell bodies and fibers containing neuropeptide Y-like immunoreactivity in the brain stem of the cat. The densest clusters of immunoreactive perikarya were observed in the following nuclei: anteroventral cochlear, lateral reticular(More)
Neuropeptide Y-like immunoreactivity was studied in the thalamus of the cat using an indirect immunoperoxidase method. The densest network of immunoreactive fibers was observed in the nucleus (n.) paraventricularis anterior. In the anterior, intralaminar and midline thalamic nuclei, as well as in the n. geniculatum medialis, n. geniculatum lateralis, n.(More)
The distribution and morphological characterization of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate-diaphorase (ND)-positive cells and fibers in the tench central nervous system was mapped by using a direct histochemical method. This enzyme was observed in specific cell populations throughout all main divisions of the tench brain. In the telencephalon, we(More)
