Abstract

Abstract A search was made for fluorescent substances which are transported retrogradely through axons to their parent cell bodies, using as a model the axons from the parafascicular nucleus and the substantia nigra to the caudate-putamen in the rat. Evans Blue without albumin, as well as Primuline and DAPI were found to be transported retrogradely through these axons and each of these substances resulted in a characteristic fluorescent labeling of the parent cell body. Moreover, after double labelling of these neurons by means of Evans Blue either in combination with HRP or in combination with a DAPI-Primuline mixture, both labels could be demonstrated independently in the individual neurons.
