Description

Confocal micrograph showing the innervation of the posterior portion of the digestive tract of an adult Drosophila fly. The circular visceral muscles are labelled in red with phalloidin staining of actin. The main nerves are stained in green (with 22c10, a MAP1B antibody), and a subset of gut-innervating insulin-producing neurons is highlighted in green.
