Abstract

The distributions and morphological characteristics of neurons displaying immunoreactivity to the catecholamine synthetic enzymes, tyrosine hydroxylase(TH), dopamine-${\beta}$-hydroxylase(DBH), and phenylethanolamine-N-methyltransferase (PNMT) were examined in the adjacent sections of the olfactory bulb of the Striped Field Mouse(Apodemus agrarius coreae). None of these cell groups displayed either DBH or PNMT immunoreactivity. Many TH-immunoreactive neurons were present in the olfactory bulb. The vast majority of such cells occurred in the glomerular layer as periglomerular cells surrounding the glomeruli. Numerous addtional cells were present in the external plexiform layer, and scattered in the mitral cell layer and internal plexiform layer. Also TH-immunoreactive neurons were found in the glomerular layer and granular layer of the accessory olfactory bulb.
