S-antigen-immunoreactive pinealocytes located in the deep portion of the pineal organ of inbred and wild pigmented mice give rise to long, beaded processes penetrating into the habenular and pretectal regions. In addition, the medial habenular nuclei and the pretectal area contain S-antigen-immunoreactive perikarya, which resemble pinealocytes in size, shape and immunoreactivity and are considered as “pinealocyte-like” epithalamic cells. Immunoblotting techniques reveal that a single protein… CONTINUE READING
