Abstract

In the present study, we performed immunohistochemistry using antibodies directed against TRPCs to study the localizations of these channels in rat hippocampus. The pyramidal cell bodies of CA1-3 areas and the granule cell bodies of the dentate gyrus were immunoreactive for TRPC1, TRPC3, TRPC4 and TRPC5. On the other hand, TRPC6 exhibited the cloud-like neuropil staining only in the molecular layer of the dentate gyrus. As a whole, the present study has clearly shown the localization of TRPCs in rat hippocampus and may provide useful data for the future investigations on the structural and functional properties of TRPCs.
