Acrolein was examined as an alternative fixative to formaldehyde for immunocytochemical localization of neuropeptides in the rat brain. A brief (5 min) vascular perfusion with a 5% acrolein solution allowed the identification of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), somatostatin (SRIF), neurotensin (NT), methionine enkephalin (Menk), adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), and luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) in fibers and… CONTINUE READING
