||The distribution and level of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) were determined in the adult rat hypothalamus following axotomy of serotonin (5-HT) neurons. Seven days after unilateral intrahypothalamic injection of the 5-HT neurotoxic, 5,7-dihydroxytryptamine, there was a marked increase in the number of GFAP-labelled astrocytes in the ipsilateral hypothalamus of 5,7-DHT-treated as compared to sham-treated rats. Measurement of GFAP levels demonstrated a significant increase on the ipsilateral side of 5,7-DHT-treated rats as compared to sham-treated rats.
