Identification of neuropeptide Y immunoreactivity in the suprachiasmatic nucleus and the lateral geniculate nucleus of some mammals.

Abstract

The distribution of neuropeptide Y (NPY) immunoreactivity in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) and the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of 5 kinds of mammals was studied using the peroxidase-anti-peroxidase method. In the SCN of the rat, hamster, chipmunk and cat, NPY-immunoreactive fibers were detected, particularly in the ventral part. In the 3 rodents… (More)
