Abstract: It has been established by a combination of HPLC and electrochemical detection that frog, lizard, goldfish, rabbit, and bovine retinas contain both dopamine and serotonin. Immunohistological and immunoradiographical methods show that serotonin is localised in amacrine perikarya and processes situated in the inner plexiform layers of frog, lizard, and goldfish retinas. The amount of serotonin in the mammalian retina appears to be too low for detection in neurones. The serotonin in the bovine retina is located mainly in the inner nuclear and plexiform layers, suggesting that the amine is present in the same types of cells as found for frog, lizard, and goldfish retinas. Retinas incubated in (3H)serotonin showed that radioactivity is associated with processes in the inner plexiform layer and amacrine perikarya. These results suggest that the neuronal elements that contain endogenous serotonin also have the capacity to accumulate exogenous amine and are consistent with the opinion that serotonin has a neuronal function in retinas of a variety of vertebrates.
