This study was attempted to investigate the topographical distribution, shape and immunoreactivity of growth hormone-releasing factor(GRF)- and somatostatin(SOM)-immunoreactive neurons in the hypothalamus of the Korean squirrels(Sciurus vulgalis coreae). For the light microscopical examination of immunohistochemistry, the brains were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde solution by means of intracardiac perfusion. And the frozen sections($40{mu}m$ thick) were stained immunohistochemically by ABC method. Distribution of GRF immunoreactive neurons($12-17{mu}m$) was highest in the paraventricular nucleus, moderate in the periventricular and supraoptic nuclei, and low in the arcuate nucleus and lateral hypothalamic area. Their immunoreactive fibers were found very high in the median eminence, moderately in the supraoptic, paraventricular and periventricular nuclei, and low in the arcuate nucleus and lateral hypothalamic area. SOM immunoreactive perikarya($14-18{mu}m$) were found moderately in the periventricular nucleus near the subependymal layer of the third ventricle, and low in the arcuate and suprachiasmatic nuclei. SOM immunoreactive fibers were found high in the median eminence, and moderately or low in the arcuate and periventricular nuclei.
Key Words: growth hormone-releasing factor, somatostatin, hypothalamus, immunohistochemistry, Korean squirrel
