Abstract

Using combined autoradiography and immunohistochemistry, we have compared (3H)-adenosine accumulation and GABA immunoreactivity in the chicken and rabbit retinas. Colocalization of the two markers was observed in a subset of amacrine cells and in certain cell bodies in the ganglion cell layer in both species and in a few horizontal cells in the chicken retina. Cells that contained only (3H)-adenosine or GABA were also seen. The degree of colocalization differed greatly between the two species. The results demonstrate a morphological relationship between the adenosine and GABA systems and provides information on the possible anatomical substrates underlying at least some types of functional interactions.
