Immuno-fluorescence cytochemistry on thin frozen sections of human substantia nigra for staining of monoamine oxidase A and monoamine oxidase B: a pilot study
Immunofluorescence cytochemistry on thin frozen sections of human substantia nigra for staining of MAO-A and MAO-B revealed that only about 10% of the melanin-containing neurons are positive for MAO-A, while they are substantially free of MAO-B.
