Table 3 Percentages of VGAT boutons in laminae I-III that were PPD-immunoreactive

From: Dynorphin is expressed primarily by GABAergic neurons that contain galanin in the rat dorsal horn

Lamina VGAT boutons analysed % VGAT boutons PPD+
I 600 (200) 4.2 (3 - 5.5)
II 600 (200) 4.2 (3 - 5)
IIo 267 (87-90) 6.8 (4.4 - 9.2)
IIi 333 (110-113) 2.1 (1.8 - 2.7)
III 600 (200) 0.2 (0 - 0.5)
  1. The second column shows the total number of VGAT boutons from each lamina (or sublamina) that were analysed, with the range per animal (n = 3 rats) shown in brackets. The mean percentages of the VGAT-positive boutons that were PPD-immunoreactive are shown in the third column, with ranges per animal in brackets.
