We have used bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) single and BrdU-arginine vasopressin-oxytocin (BrdU-AVP-OT) double and triple label immunohistochemistry to characterize postnatal neurogenesis of the supraoptic and paraventricular nuclei in the Brazilian opossum. Developing pups received a single injection of BrdU between days 1 and 11 postnatally. All brains were collected on day 60 of postnatal life (60 PN). Single label BrdU immunohistochemistry revealed that an injection at 1 PN resulted in heavy… CONTINUE READING
