Compartmental organization of calretinin in the rat striatum.


The present study examined the compartmental distribution of a calcium-binding protein, calretinin, in the rat striatum. Calretinin-immunoreactive cells were homogeneously scattered throughout the striatum, but calretinin-immunoreactive fibers were clustered as patches in the medial, central and ventral caudoputamen and in the lateral nucleus accumbens… (More)
