Localization of nerve growth factor receptor messenger RNA and protein in the adult rat brain

Experimental Neurology

Abstract

We have used in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry to map the cellular localization of NGF receptor (NGF-R) mRNA and protein in the adult rat brain. In addition to basal forebrain magnocellular neurons, NGF-R is widely expressed within the CNS, including neurons of the caudate/putamen, ventral premamillary nucleus, mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus, prepositus hypoglossal nucleus, raphe nucleus, nucleus ambiguous, and Purkinje cells of the cerebellum. Cells of the vestibulocochlear ganglion also contain NGF-R mRNA and protein. Ventricular subependymal cells and tanycytes are clearly stained by immunocytochemistry, yet only very weak hybridization is detectable in these cells. Also, greater amounts of NGF-R protein than of mRNA appear to be present in the glomeruli of the olfactory bulb, area postrema, and nucleus tractus solitarius. Areas that contain only NGF-R immunoreactive fibers and terminals can be distinguished from the cellular sites of NGF-R biosynthesis and include the suprachiasmatic nucleus, the principal olivary pretectal nucleus, the superior colliculus, the inferior olive, and the principal and spinal trigeminal nuclei. This study shows that NGF-R is widely expressed within individual neurons in different ...Continue Reading
