Mesencephalic arteriolar and neuronal metabolic profiles from fresh and in vitro incubated tissue sections in the mouse: a histochemical approach.

Neuronal perikarya and arterioles of slices of mouse midbrain were examined histochemically to determine their metabolic profiles. No differences in reactivities of key metabolic enzymes were observed between fresh 400-micron tissue sections and sections undergoing in vitro incubation for 4 h at 35 degrees C. Both neurons and arterioles appear capable of… CONTINUE READING
