GABAergic system of the pineal organ of an elasmobranch (Scyliorhinus canicula): a developmental immunocytochemical study


The present immunocytochemical study provides evidence of a previously unrecognized, rich, γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-ergic innervation of the pineal organ in the dogfish (Scyliorhinus canicula). In this elasmobranch, the pineal primordium is initially detected at embryonic stage 24 and grows to form a long pineal tube by stage 28. Glutamic acid… (More)
