Distribution of glutamate-like and glutamine-like immunoreactivities in the rat organ of Corti: a light microscopic and semiquantitative electron microscopic analysis with a note on the localization of aspartate

The light- and electron microscopic localization of glutamate and glutamine in the rat organ of Corti was studied by means of antisera raised against the respective amino acids coupled to carrier proteins. The light microscopic analysis was performed in semithin sections treated according to the peroxidase-antiperoxidase procedure. The two amino acids were… CONTINUE READING
