Resumen: A growing number of studies have revealed the functional neuroarchitecture of the microbat retina and suggested that microbats can see using their eyes. To better understand the organization of the microbat retina, quantitative analysis of protein kinase C alpha (PKCα)- and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)-immunoreactive (IR) cells was conducted on the greater horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum) retina. As a result, PKCα immunoreactivity was observed in rod bipolar cells, consistent with previous studies on other mammalian retinas. PKCα-IR cell distribution in the inner nuclear layer showed regional differences in density, with the highest density found in the nasal retina. The average density of PKCα-IR cells was 10,487±441 cells/mm2 (mean ± SD; n=4), with a total of 43,077±1,843 cells/retina. TH-IR cells in the Rhinolophus ferrumequinum retina could be classified into four types based on soma location and ramification in the inner plexiform layer: conventional amacrine, displaced amacrine, interplexiform, and intercalated cells. The majority of TH-IR cells were conventional amacrine cells. TH-IR cells were nonrandomly distributed at low density over the retina. The average density was 29.7±3.1 cells/mm2 (mean ± SD; n=3), with a total of 124.0±11.3 cells/retina. TH-IR processes showed varicosities and formed ring-like structures encircling AII amacrine cells. Our study provides the foundation for understanding the neurochemical architecture of the microbat retina and supports the notion that the eyes do play a role in the visual system of microbats.
