Putative dopamine-containing cells in the retina of seven species demonstrated by tyrosine hydroxylase immunocytochemistry.

Abstract

Immunocytochemistry with antibodies to catecholamine synthesizing enzymes has revealed cells in the retina of chick, mouse, hamster, rat, guinea-pig, piglet and marmoset which contain tyrosine hydroxylase but not dopamine beta-hydroxylase. These findings suggest that the cells in question produce dopamine but that catecholamine synthesis does not proceed… (More)
