  • Using 125I-salmon calcitonin (sCT) as a ligand, in vitro autoradiography of rat brain outlined specific anatomical localization of human calcitonin (hCT) sensitive binding sites. The results presented herein show that there are hCT sensitive binding sites in the ventral part of the lateral septum among the sCT specific binding sites distributed throughout the diencephalon.
