Mouse kidney section. FluoCells® prepared slide #3.
FluoCells® prepared slide #3 (Cat. no. F24630) contains a mouse kidney section stained with a combination of fluorescent dyes. Alexa Fluor® 488 wheat germ agglutinin (Cat. no. W11261) is a green-fluorescent lectin that was used to label elements of the glomeruli and convoluted tubules. The filamentous actin prevalent in glomeruli and the brush border were stained with red-orange–fluorescent Alexa Fluor® 568 phalloidin (Cat. no. A12380). Finally, the nuclei were stained with the blue-fluorescent DNA stain DAPI (Cat. no. D1306, D3571, D21490). This pseudocolored image was acquired on a Zeiss confocal microscope located at the Institute of Neuroscience, University of Oregon.
