GABAergic synapses and benzodiazepine receptors are not identically distributed in the primate retina.


The distribution of benzodiazepine receptors (BZR) was compared to the distribution of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-ergic synapses in the rhesus monkey retina using monoclonal antibodies against the BZR and polyclonal antisera to glutamate decarboxylase (GAD), the GABA-synthesizing enzyme which labels the presynaptic terminals of the GABAergic synapses… (More)
