Transient induction of c-fos in rat magnocellular hypothalamic neurons after hypophysectomy.


Using immunofluorescence histochemistry, the paraventricular and supraoptic hypothalamic nuclei of normal control and hypophysectomized rats were studied in double labelling experiments with antibodies against the protein c-fos (Fos) and against vasopressin or oxytocin in order to characterize the activated neurons chemically. Normal controls showed no… (More)
