dc.description.abstract In situ hybridization histochemistry and immunocytochemistry were used to examine lamina- and cell-specific expression of glutamate receptor (GluR) mRNAs and polypeptide subunits in motor and somatosensory cortex of macaque monkeys. Radioactive complementary RNA (cRNA) probes were prepared from cDNAs specific for α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxozolepropionate (AMPA)/kainate (GluR1-GluR4), kainate (GluR5-GluR7), and N-methylD-aspartate (NMDA; NR1, NR2A-NR2D) receptor subunits. AMPA/kainate and NR1, NR2A, and NR2B receptor transcripts show higher expression than other transcripts. All transcripts show lamina-specific patterns of distribution. GluR2 and GluR4 mRNAs show higher expression than do GluR1 and GluR3 mRNAs. GluR6 transcript expression is higher than that of GluR5 and GluR7. NR1 mRNA expression is much higher than that of NR2 mRNAs. NR2C subunit expression is very low except for a very distinct band of high expression in layer IV of area 3b. Immunocytochemistry, using subunit-specific antisera and double labeling for calbindin, parvalbumin, or α type II Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase (CaMKII-α), allowed identification of cell types expressing different subunit genes. GluR1 and GluR5/6/7 immunoreactivity is found in both pyramidal cells and gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) cells; GluR2/3 immunoreactivity is preferentially found in pyramidal cells, whereas GluR4 immunoreactivity is largely restricted to GABA cells; NMDA receptor subunit immunoreactivity is far greater in excitatory cells than in GABA cells. The density of expression of AMPA/kainate, kainate, and NMDA receptor subunit mRNAs differed within and across the architectonic fields of sensory-motor cortex. This finding and the lamina- and cell-specific patterns of expression suggest assembly of functional receptors from different arrangements of available subunits in specific neuronal populations. spa
