Nerve terminals contacting a monoaminergic neuron
D E Krantz

UCLA Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, 695 Charles Young Drive South, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1761, USA


Figure 1 Nerve terminals contacting a monoaminergic neuron. Primary cultures of dopamine neurons were prepared from rat midbrain and visualized using immunofluorescence. Blue indicates staining with a sheep primary antibody to tyrosine hydroxylase and a secondary antibody conjugated to the flurophore Cy5. Green indicates staining with a monoclonal antibody to the synaptic vesicle marker synaptophysin and an anti-mouse secondary antibody conjugated to FITC. The presynaptic nerve terminals containing synaptic vesicles arise from cell bodies outside the field of view. For further information on aminergic synaptic transmission see the accompanying article in the next issue of Molecular Psychiatry.
