Image of the Month

October 2021 – Rat neurospheres were cultured in neuronal specification medium “NSM” one week. Double immunofluorescence for the neuron-specific class III Beta-Tubulin (TuJ1) (green) and neuron specific enolase (NSE) (red) shows co-localization of both markers in the cell body, whereas in some neurons NSE labeled cell processes that were negative for TuJ1.
