Localization of dopamine-beta-hydroxylase-like immunoreactivity in the superior olivary complex of the rat.

The noradrenergic (NA) innervation of the superior olivary complex (SOC) was investigated using a monoclonal antibody against dopamine-beta-hydroxylase (D beta H), the synthesizing enzyme for noradrenaline. In addition, positive labelling of D beta H in the inferior colliculus, the lateral lemniscus (LL) and the cochlear nucleus were documented. The… (More)
