Cell bodies of small to moderate-sized neurons in the female rat hypothalamus were stained specifically for somatostatin (SRIF) by means of the unlabeled antibody-peroxidase-antiperoxidase immunocytochemical method. SRIF-positive perikarya were scattered throughout the periventricular nucleus in a limited region extending from the middle of the optic chiasm to the rostral margin of the median eminence. The same neurons were revealed with either rabbit (R) or guinea pig (GP) anti-SRIF antisera… CONTINUE READING
