The role of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in homeostatic control in the brainstem, in particular, in the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS), is well established. However, to date, there is no detailed description of the distribution of GABAergic neurons within the NTS. The goal of the current study was to reexamine the efficacy of immunohistochemical localization of glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) protein, specifically the 67-kDa isoform (GAD67), as a marker for GABAergic neurons in the… CONTINUE READING
