We have examined the development of the dopaminergic system of the guinea pig retina, a species in which retinal neuronal and synaptic differentiation occurs largely in utero. Fetal animals aged 42-69 days (full term), neonates, postnatal (pn) animals to 12 weeks, and mature animals were studied to determine retinal dopamine (DA) storage, metabolism (DOPAC), in vitro tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) activity, postsynaptic target activation (cAMP stimulation) and localization (formaldehyde-induced… CONTINUE READING
