The ultrastructure of serotonergic projections to the dorsal horn of the rat spinal cord has been investigated, using a highly specific polyclonal antiserum. The highest concentrations of immunoreactive profiles were found in lamina I and the outer part of lamina II (IIo). Intermediate concentrations were found in laminae III and IV, while the inner part of lamina II (IIi) was almost devoid of immunoreactivity. Whereas 60% of the profiles show at least one varicosity studded with synaptic… CONTINUE READING
