Selective lesion of the developing central noradrenergic system: Short- and long-term effects and reinnervation by noradrenergic-rich tissue grafts.

Coradazzi M, Gulino R, Garozzo S, Leanza G (2010) Selective lesion of the developing central noradrenergic system: Short- and long-term effects and reinnervation by noradrenergic-rich tissue grafts. J Neurochem 114(3):761-771. doi: 10.1111/j.1471-4159.2010.06800.x

Summary: The authors removed noradrenergic neurons in the locus coeruleus/subcoeruleus complex of neonatal rats with 0.25-1.0 µg bilateral injections of anti-DBH-SAP (Cat. #IT-03). No damage was seen in dopaminergic, adrenergic, serotonergic, or cholinergic neurons after this treatment. Rats receiving fetal locus coeruleus tissue implants showed significant post-lesion recovery suggesting that this model can be used to investigate compensatory reinnervation and functional recovery in the central nervous system.
