Sonja Neumann and Silke Haverkamp Characterization of small-field bistratified amacrine cells in macaque retina labeled by antibodies against synaptotagmin-2 Journal of Comparative Neurology 521
Amacrine cells are inhibitory neurons that are extremely diverse. They represent the largest class of retinal interneurons; however, so far the function of only a few of them is well understood. Here we demonstrate that synaptotagmin 2 (Syt2) is a marker for a distinct type of small-field bistratified amacrine cell in the macaque retina. We have used this marker to investigate the morphology, density, and connectivity pattern of Syt2-immunoreactive amacrine cells in central and peripheral macaque retina. GCL, ganglion cell layer; INL, inner nuclear layer; IPL, inner plexiform layer. Scale bar = 10 μm.
