Development of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor subunit immunoreactivity in the neonatal gerbil cochlear nucleus.

The distribution of immunoreactivity for the ionotropic N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor subunits was mapped in the cochlear nucleus of postnatal day (P) 7, P14, P21, and P28 gerbils. Frozen sections and serial plastic sections of tissue were incubated with antibodies to NMDAR1 (NR1), NMDAR2A (NR2A), NMDAR2A/B (NR2A/B), and NMDAR2B (NR2B). An overall… CONTINUE READING
