Selective labeling of mossy fiber terminals and parallel fibers was obtained in rat cerebellar cortex by a glutamate antibody produced and characterized by Hepler et al. The high-resolution electron microscopic immunogold demonstration of this amino acid offered the possibility of determining the size and shape of synaptic vesicles in glutamate-positive… CONTINUE READING
