Light microscopy of tissue sections stained with cationic iron colloid (pH 1.0-1.5) showed that the adult rat spinal cord contains some neurons which are provided with strongly negative-charged surface coats. These neurons are distributed preferentially in the posterior and intermediomedial columns of the grey matter. The present study thus supplements our previous study of the rat brain (Murakami et al., 1993b), and proves that the neurons with strongly negative-charged surface coats occur widely in the central nervous system of the adult rat.
