Morphological characteristics of dopaminergic immunoreactive neurons in the olfactory bulb of the common marmoset monkey (Callithrix jacchus)



Morphological characteristics of dopaminergic immunoreactive neurons in the olfactory bulb of the common marmoset monkey (Callithrix jacchus)



Annals of Anatomy 185(6): 543-547



The present study describes the distribution of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)-immunoreactive (IR) elements in the olfactory bulb of the common marmoset monkey (Callithrix jacchus), a primate species by immunohistochemistry. We identified six layers of the olfactory bulb of the common marmoset monkey in sections stained with cresyl violet. The majority of TH-IR cells were found in the glomerular layer. A few TH-IR cells were present in the external plexiform and granule cell layers. TH-IR fibers were identified in all layers of the olfactory bulb. The density of these nerve fibers was high in the internal plexiform and granule cell layers. The results in the olfactory bulb of the common marmoset monkey are generally similar to previous reports in some mammals. These data suggest that TH in the olfactory bulb of the common marmoset monkey may play a role in olfactory transmission via the glomeruli like in other mammals.
