Immunocytochemical localization of somatostatin-containing neurons in the rat hypothalamus

  title={Immunocytochemical localization of somatostatin-containing neurons in the rat hypothalamus},
  author={Prof. Dr. K. Dierickx and Frans Vandesande},
  journal={Cell and Tissue Research},
The rat hypothalamus was studied at the light microscopic level with the use of single and double immunocytochemical staining methods. It was shown that the rat supraoptic and paraventricular hypothalamic nuclei, and their accessory neurosecretory nuclei, do not contain magnocellular somatostatin neurons. The distribution of the hypothalamic parvocellular somatostatin cells is described. The parvocellular component of the rat hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus is, at least partly, composed of… CONTINUE READING
