Localization of enkephalin-like immunoreactivity in the substantia nigra of the Japanese red-faced monkey was investigated by light and electron microscopy using the peroxidase-anti-peroxidase method. Immunoreactive precipitates were predominantly distributed in the nerve fibers of the substantia nigra pars reticulata but not in the perikarya, and a low density of immunoreactive enkephalin was found in the pars compacta of this nucleus. Electron microscopic observations showed that enkephalin… CONTINUE READING
