Trh immunoreactive neurons project from the ventral medulla to the intermediolateral cell column partial coexistence with serotonin

Trh immunoreactive neurons project from the ventral medulla to the intermediolateral cell column partial coexistence with serotonin

Projections from medullary thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) containing neurons to the intermediolateral cell column (IML) of the thoracic spinal cord were studied in the rat. Lesions of the ventral medullary reticular formation nuclei, nucleus paragigantocellularis lateralis and nucleus interfascicularis hypoglossi, decreased the thyrotropin-releasing hormone immunoreactivity in the IML. The ventral horn and dorsal horn contents of TRH were also reduced in rats with nucleus paragigantocellularis lateralis lesions. Coexistence of spinal cord TRH and serotonin was evaluated and quantified in 5,7-dihydroxytryptamne-treated rats. Treatment with the serotonin neurotoxin reduced the TRH content of the IML by 45% and of the ventral horn by 92%. These data show that TRH containing neurons project from the ventral medulla to IML and that approximately one-half of these TRH neurons are also serotonergic. Comparisons of the effects of the same lesions on the substance P and TRH content of the IML show that neither the origin of the SP and TRH neuronal projections to the IML, nor their coexistence with serotonin, are identical.
