Differential effects of axotomy on substance P-containing and nicotinic acetylcholine receptor-containing retinal ganglion cells: time course of degeneration and effects of nerve growth factor.


The time course of degeneration of chick retinal ganglion cells was examined with Nissl stains and immunohistochemical methods for detection of substance P-like immunoreactive and nicotinic acetylcholine receptor immunoreactive neurons. Small lesions were made in the retinae, adjacent to the optic nerve head, and were subsequently sectioned parallel to the… (More)
