Complementary RNA probes derived from complementary DNA specifically subcloned from monkey tissue were used to localize, by in situ hybridization histochemistry, the relatively rare alpha3, beta3 and gamma1 subunit transcripts of the GABA(A) receptor in visual cortex and lateral geniculate nucleus of normal monkeys and in monkeys that had been deprived of vision in one eye. Overall, levels of alpha3, beta3 and gamma1 subunit transcripts were very low. In the primary visual cortex (area 17) they… CONTINUE READING
