The nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) alpha2 subunit was the first neuronal nAChR to be cloned. However, data for the distribution of alpha2 mRNA in the rodent exists in only a few studies. Therefore, we investigated the expression of alpha2 mRNA in the rat and mouse central nervous systems using nonradioactive in situ hybridization histochemistry. We detected strong hybridization signals in cell bodies located in the internal plexiform layer of the olfactory bulb, the interpeduncular… CONTINUE READING
