To characterize glutamatergic axon terminals onto sympathetic preganglionic neurons (SPNs), we visualized immunohistochemically three vesicular glutamate transporters (VGLUTs) in the intermediolateral cell column (IML) of rat thoracic spinal cord. VGLUT2 and VGLUT3 immunoreactivities but not VGLUT1 immunoreactivity were distributed in the IML and found in terminals making asymmetric synapses and apposed to dendrites immunopositive for choline acetyltransferase, an SPN marker. VGLUT2 and VGLUT3… CONTINUE READING
