Description

High resolution montage of a sagittal section through the cerebellar cortex of an adult male rat (80g), triple-labeled to reveal nuclei (Hoescht stain, blue), Purkinje neurons (IP3 receptor, green) and astroglia (glial fibrillary acidic protein, GFAP, red). This image is a maximum projection of the Z-stack through the tissue, and has been downsampled from the raw data image which can be accessed using the link provided to the Cell Centered Database.

Technical Details

80µm thick sections were mounted in gelvitol using coverslips with a 1.0 µm thickness. Images were acquired with a BioRad RTS 2000MP Multiphoton microscope using a 40X 1.3NA oil immersion objective. This mosaic image was reconstructed with 10% overlap of individual images; image normalization was performed using ImageJ.
