[The colocalization of neurotransmitters in the presynaptic boutons of inhibitory synapses in the lamprey spinal cord].Ross Fiziol Zh Im I M Sechenova. 1999 Apr; 85(4):515-22.RF
Using the electron microscopy immunocytochemistry, the GABA and glycine immunoreactivity was studied in presynaptic axon terminals of the spinal cord central gray in the lamprey Lampetra fluviatilis. All immunopositive presynaptic terminals contacting motoneurones or non-identified post-synaptic profiles were divided into only GABA- (44%), only glycine-immunopositive terminals (26%), and both GABA- and glycine-containing terminals (30%). The glycine-immunopositive axon terminals contained flattened synaptic vesicles. Large dense core vesicles were co-localised with conventional synaptic vesicles in 74% of GABA-containing presynaptic terminals.
