The toxic lectin ricin was applied to the hamster chorda tympani (CT), producing anterograde degeneration of its terminal boutons within the gustatory zone of the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST). Immunocytochemistry was subsequently performed with antiserum against tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), and the synaptic relationships between degenerating CT terminal boutons and either TH-immunoreactive or unlabeled dendritic processes were examined at the electron microscopic level. Degenerating CT… CONTINUE READING
