Abstract

After in vitro incubation, the uptake of labelled serotonin was investigated by electron microscopic autoradiography in the ganglia of fresh water mussel (Anodonta cygnea L.). The labelled serotonin was primarily taken up by the axons of the neurons. The silver grains could always be localized over axons containing eccentric dense core vesicles with a diameter of 100-200 nm. The results suggest the possibility of the electron microscopic identification of serotonin-containing neurons, and the direct role of the eccentric dense-core vesicles in the storage of serotonin.
