Description

Transmission electron micrograph using immuno-gold labeling to show the location of PSD-95 in 3 glutamatergic synapses on an interneuron dendrite from the CA1 stratum radiatum of the hippocampus of an adult male rat (postnatal day 37). PSD-95 is labeled with a new rabbit monoclonal antibody (Cell Signaling Technology, Inc. - cat. #3450) and 10 nm immunogold (Ted Pella, GFAR). pre=presynaptic terminal, mit=mitochondrion, scale bar is 100 nm
