Differences in tyrosine hydroxylase-like immunoreactivity characterize the mesostriatal innervation of striosomes and extrastriosomal matrix at maturity.

Abstract

Tyrosine hydroxylase [TyrOHase, tyrosine 3-monooxygenase, L-tyrosine, tetrahydropteridine:oxygen oxidoreductase (2-hydroxylating), EC 1.14.16.2] is the rate-limiting enzyme in the synthetic pathway of catecholamines and is expressed by neurons containing dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. TyrOHase is present in high concentrations in the caudate… (More)
