Vestibular labyrinth from turtle. Lysine-fixable 3000 MW tetramethylrhodamine dextran and BODIPY® FL phallacidin.
The attached eighth nerve from the vestibular labyrinth of a turtle, Pseudemys scripta, exposed to lysine-fixable 3000 MW tetramethylrhodamine dextran (Cat. no. D3308) and incubated with F-actin–specific BODIPY® FL phallacidin (Cat. no. B607). F-actin–labeled ciliary bundles were stained green by the phallacidin, and the calyceal and bouton endings of their primary afferents were stained red by the dextran.
