Innervation of putative rapidly adapting mechanoreceptors by calbindin- and calretinin-immunoreactive primary sensory neurons in the rat.


Calbindin and calretinin are two homologous calcium-binding proteins that are expressed by subpopulations of primary sensory neurons. In the present work, we have studied the distribution of the neurons expressing calbindin and calretinin in dorsal root ganglia of the rat and their peripheral projections. Calbindin and calretinin immunoreactivities were… (More)
