A detailed study of the distribution of neuropeptide Y (NPY) in the striatum of squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus) and cat was undertaken by means of indirect immunofluorescence and peroxidase-antiperoxidase (PAP) methods. In monkey, the NPY-immunoreactivity is homogeneously distributed along the entire extent of the caudate nucleus (CD) and putamen (PUT), while in cat marked heterogeneities are noted. In the CD of cat, the NPY-immunoreactive fibers and cell bodies are concentrated in numerous… CONTINUE READING
