Abstract

Retrograde transport of the fluorescent tracer Fluorogold was used in combination with immunohistochemical staining for the enzyme glutaminase to identify putative glutamatergic neurons belonging to the rat spinomesencephalic tract. Glutaminase-like staining in spinal projection neurons suggests that the relay of nociceptive information from the spinal cord to midbrain may involve the excitatory amino acid glutamate.
