Cells expressing preproenkephalin mRNA in the rat pineal gland are not serotonin-producing pinealocytes: Evidence usingin Situ hybridization combined with immunocytochemistry for serotonin

Abstract

1. Preproenkephalin (PPEnk) mRNA expressing cells have been identified in rat pineal gland using radioactivein situ hybridization histochemistry. 2. Approximately 7% of the cells in the pineal gland (7.5±0.86, mean ± 95% CI) express PPEnk mRNA. These cells are distributed throughout the pineal as either scattered single cells or small groups of cells with… (More)
