Antisera to a glutamate (Glu) conjugate, to glutaminase (GLN), and to substance P (SP) have been used to investigate the issue of putative glutamergic neurons in the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) and the possible coexistence in these neurons of Glu and SP. The Glu antiserum, characterized by immunoadsorption and immunoblot tests, is highly selective for Glu out of a number of other amino acids including aspartate. Quantitative data were gathered from consecutive 4-microns-thick paraffin sections… CONTINUE READING
