Complementary distribution of vesicular glutamate transporters 1 and 2 in the nucleus accumbens of rat: Relationship to calretinin-containing extrinsic innervation and calbindin-immunoreactive neurons

The Journal of comparative neurology

The caudomedial shell of the rat nucleus accumbens exhibits inhomogeneous distribution patterns of the vesicular glutamate transporters 1 (VGLUT1) and 2 (VGLUT2). This paper focuses on the question of whether patterns of VGLUT1 and VGLUT2 correspond to cytoarchitectonically and cytochemically defined subterritories of the caudomedial shell region. VGLUT2 was shown to be coexpressed with calretinin in the dense axonal plexus known to emanate from the paraventricular thalamic nucleus. In regions…
