Immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization techniques were used to localize the beta 4 subunit of the neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) in the ground squirrel retina. The beta 4 nAChR subunit was detected in both transverse and horizontal sections of the retina using a subunit-specific antiserum and the avidin-biotin complex technique. Two bands of labeled processes were seen in the inner plexiform layer, corresponding approximately to the laminae where the cholinergic… CONTINUE READING
