Tokuno H, Chiken S, Kametani K, Moriizumi T (2002) Efferent projections from the striatal patch compartment: anterograde degeneration after selective ablation of neurons expressing mu-opioid receptor in rats. Neurosci Lett 332(1):5-8. doi: 10.1016/s0304-3940(02)00837-6
Summary: Taking advantage of the fact that neurons in patch compartments of the striatum express µ-opioid receptors, the authors injected 8.5 ng of dermorphin-SAP (Cat. #IT-12) into the striatum of rats. This lesion produced a degeneration of patch neurons as well as anterograde degeneration of efferent fibers from patch compartments, allowing further elucidation of the functional organization of the striatum.
