GnRH-containing Synapses in The Preoptic Area of Normal and
Ovariectomized Female Rat Immunocytochemical Study
by Barbara Gajkowska and Kazimierz Kochman
immunoreactivity in preoptic area synapses of young normal and
ovarieLtomized female rat hypothalamus was investigated Immunolabelling
was performed using the 15 nm gold-antibody complex specific
for GnRH decapeptide.
The only elements consistently labelled were certain neurons,
their axons and dendntes and axonal endings The decreasing influence
of ovanectomy on content of GnRH immunoreactivity in synapses
of POA region was detected.
