Laminin & cranial ganglion
Editor's Pics Nov 16, 2016
This fluorescence micrograph has been stained with a neurofillament stain to highlight a developing cranial ganglion.
The long axons of these developing neurons can be seen in green as they connect with the developing brain.
The purple highlights laminin. Laminins are part of a protein network important in development and formation of tissue as cellular scaffolding and form extra-cellular matrixes.
