Dissociated cells from embryonic rat midbrain develop in dissociated culture into glutamatergic, GABAergic and aminergic cells. The autofluorescent serotonin analogue, 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine (5,7-DHT), is taken up by a small population of cells that is immunoreactive to 5-hydroxytryptamine. Tyrosine hydroxylase-immunoreactive cells do not accumulate 5,7-DHT. 5,7-DHT uptake, therefore, is well suited for the identification of living serotonergic cells and their discrimination from dopaminergic cells.
