Reactive zinc (Zn) is crucial for neuronal signaling and is largely distributed within presynaptic vesicles of some axon terminals of distinct vertebrates. However, the distribution of reactive Zn throughout the central nervous system (CNS) is not fully explored. We performed a topographical study of CNS structures containing reactive Zn in the adult zebrafish (Danio rerio). Slices of CNS from zebrafish were stained by Neo-Timm and/or cresyl violet. The Zn specificity of Neo-Timm was evaluated… CONTINUE READING
