Expression and distribution of the glutamate transporter in the dorsal root ganglion (A) and the spinal cord (B-D). EAAC1 is expressed mainly in small dorsal root ganglion cells (A) and distributed predominantly in the superficial dorsal horn of the spinal cord (B). GLAST (C) and GLT-1 (D) are expressed highly in the superficial dorsal horn and the region around the central canal. Scale bars: 10 μm in A and 125 μm in B, C, and D.
