In the developing and adult human paraventricular (PVN) and supraoptic (SON) nucleus, a large proportion of neurons contains the catecholamine-synthesizing enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase (TH). In the present study we investigated the possible colocalization of TH with oxytocin (OXT) or vasopressin (VP) in the adult and neonatal PVN and SON. Adjacent paraffin sections were incubated simultaneously with two antibodies: a polyclonal against TH and a monoclonal against OXT or VP and stained with a… CONTINUE READING
