N-Acetylaspartylglutamate like immunoreactivity (NAAG-L) was identified in retinal ganglion cell bodies and their axons. The presence of the dipeptide in ganglion cell projection areas, the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) and superior colliculus (SC), was confirmed following NAAG purification from these tissues by a high-performance liquid chromatographic method. NAAG-L was identified in the optic tract as well as within fibers and puncta in the LGN and SC. The hypothesis that NAAG is present… CONTINUE READING
