We have recently revealed that large multipolar neurons, presumed mossy cells in the hamster dentate gyrus (DG), were calretinin (CR)-immunoreactive (IR) at the ventral level, although these neurons were CR-negative at the dorsal level. In the present study, we confirmed this identification with several methods and analyzed structural features of hamster mossy cells in detail. Golgi impregnationi and intracellular Lucifer yellow labeling studies revealed that mossy cells in the hamster dentate… CONTINUE READING
