Immunocytochemical localization of the mGluR1 alpha metabotropic glutamate receptor in the dorsal cochlear nucleus.


We demonstrate that the metabotropic glutamate receptor mGluR1 alpha is enriched in two interneuron cell populations in the dorsal division of the cochlear nucleus. Electron microscopic analysis confirms that mGluR1 alpha immunoreactivity is concentrated in the dendritic spines of cartwheel cells and in dendrites of the recently described unipolar brush… (More)
