Hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) is a gaseous neuromodulator that can be synthesized by the transsulfuration enzymes cystathionine beta-synthase (CBS) and cystathionine gamma-lyase (CGL). In this study we examined H(2)S as a potential neuromodulator in vertebrate retina. CBS-like immunoreactivity (LI) was found in somas in the inner nuclear layer and as punctate staining in the inner and outer plexiform layers in the salamander retina. CGL-LI was most clearly characterized in salamander, where it was… CONTINUE READING
