Neuropeptide Y-like immunoreactive C1 neurons in the rostral ventrolateral medulla of the rabbit project to sympathetic preganglionic neurons in the spinal cord.


After injection into the thoracic spinal cord of the rabbit, gold particles coupled to concanavalin A were found in the rostral ventrolateral medulla in neurons which contained neuropeptide Y-like immunoreactivity. These cells have previously been shown to belong to the C1 catecholamine (presumably adrenaline)- synthesizing group. Nerve terminals in the… (More)
