Abstract

The origin and distribution of immunoreactive-like somatostatin (ISRIF) in the rodent hippocampus was determined by light microscopic immunocytochemistry. ISRIF neurons were demonstrable in long-term explants of fetal mouse hippocampus, demonstrating that a population of SRIF neurons are intrinsic to the hippocampus. In the adult rat, mouse and guinea pig ISRIF was present in several types of neurons - including pyramidal, basket and multipolar neurons - and in all hippocampal regions except for the granule cells of the dentate gyrus. These results suggest that the same molecule is found in neurons which may subserve different functions.
