Ontogeny of Carnosine, Olfactory Marker Protein and Neurotransmitter Enzymes in Olfactory Bulb and Olfactory Mucosa of the Rat

  • Chapter

Abstract

Both the olfactory and vomeronasal pathways are neuronal systems in which the sensory neurons are thought to be capable of continuous replenishment and re-innervation of their central targets (Craziadei and Monti-Graziadei 1978; Simmons and Getchell 1981; Hinds et al. 1984; Wang and Halpern 1982). This implies the occurrence of very dynamic morphogenetic and metabolic changes within the epithelium where the cell bodies reside, as well as in the bulb where synaptogenesis takes place. Alterations of the synaptic input of the primary olfactory neurons to their target neurons in the olfactory bulb has demonstrated that the afferent olfactory neurons can modulate the biochemical phenotype expressed by their juxtaglomerular target neurons (Baker et al. 1983, 1984; Kream et al. 1984).
