Glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), the γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-synthetic enzyme, consists of two isoforms, GAD67 and GAD65. Although distributions of the two GAD isoforms at the somatic level are known to be heterogeneous among different subpopulations of GABAergic neurons, those at the synaptic level have not been investigated. In order to analyze quantitatively the two GAD-isoform immunoreactivities in axon terminals, we combined confocal laser scanning microscopy with digitized image… CONTINUE READING
