Glutamate receptor subtypes localize to patches in the developing striatum.


The distribution of glutamate receptors in the developing striatum of the rat was studied using antibodies specific to AMPA and NMDA subtypes. Immunocytochemistry revealed a greater density of GluR1, GluR2/3, NMDAR1, and NMDAR2A/2B receptors in patches that matched the patches of substance P-immunoreactive neurons and dopaminergic terminals. GluR1… (More)
