The expression of the calcium-binding protein calretinin (CR) in the chick cochlear nucleus, nucleus magnocellularis (NM), was examined after unilateral cochlea removal in hatchlings and 3-week-old birds. Following survival times of 3, 6 or 12 h or 1, 3 or 7 days, CR mRNA was localized by in situ hybridization using a radiolabeled chick CR probe. Levels of CR protein were assessed by CR-immunoreactivity (CR-I) using a calcium-independent CR antiserum and immunohistochemistry. At survival times… CONTINUE READING
