Because of controversy about the role of the p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75(NTR) ) in the cholinergic basal forebrain (CBF), we investigated this region in p75(NTR) third exon knockout mice that were congenic with 129/Sv controls. They express a shortened intracellular form of p75(NTR) , permitting detection of p75(NTR) -expressing cells. We performed separate counts of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT)-expressing and p75(NTR) -expressing neurons. In agreement with past reports, the number of… CONTINUE READING
