The retrograde transynaptic transport of pseudorabies virus was used in conjunction with hybridisation histochemistry for the angiotensin II AT1A receptor, to characterise neurons in the lamina terminalis projecting to the kidney. These data demonstrate that some neurons in the lamina terminalis, that project polysynaptically to the kidney, may be responsive to angiotensin II.
