Pre- and postnatal development of catecholamine-containing and cholinesterase-positive nerves of the rat cornea and iris

Abstract

Glyoxylic acid-induced fluorescence technique and a copper thiocholine method were used to investigate the ontogenesis of the catecholamine-containing and cholinesterase-positive nerves of the rat iris and cornea. First fluorescent nerve fibres appeared in the iris on the 18th gestation day and in the cornea on the 19th day. A rapid increase in the density… (More)
