A double labelling immunohistochemical study of rat L4 dorsal root ganglia was made with an anti-substance P antibody and with an antibody, RT97, which specifically labels the light cell population. Substance P-like immunoreactivity was found in 30% of the small dark neurons and 10% of the light neurons. Of the neurons with substance P-like immunoreactivity, 30% were light neurons and 70% were small dark neurons. A study of electrophysiologically characterized neurons in lumbar dorsal root… CONTINUE READING
