The distribution of m1-m4 muscarinic acetylcholine receptors was investigated by immunolight and electron microscopy in rat dorsal root ganglia, by using subtype-specific antibodies. The light microscopic observations show that both the intensity and the localisation of immunolabeling of the four muscarinic subtypes are different. The m2 receptor is the most represented; m2 and m4 receptor proteins are principally expressed in the small-medium type neurones, while m1 and m3 receptor proteins… CONTINUE READING
