The present report presents a series of experiments using Bartha's K strain of pseudorabies virus (PRV) designed to test the specificity of this virus as a retrograde transneuronal marker in the sympathetic nervous system of rats. Three experiments were performed. First, an injection of PRV was made in the anterior chamber of the eye, followed 24 hr later by an injection of WGA-HRP. PRV infected neurons in the superior cervical ganglion (SCG) always contained WGA-HRP. This dual labeling of SCG… CONTINUE READING
