Dopamine, an important neuromodulator in the retina, controls the balance of rod cone photoreceptor activity and influences the activity of several interneurons. The postnatal development of dopaminergic neurons, visualized immunocytochemically, was compared to the development of dopamine D1 receptor immunoreactivity. Expression of D1 receptors was monitored throughout the postnatal development of the rat retina using a subtype-specific monoclonal antibody. D1 receptors are expressed in the… CONTINUE READING
