Mouse kidney section. FluoCells® prepared slide #3.
FluoCells® prepared slide #3 (Cat. no. F24630) contains a section of mouse kidney stained with a combination of fluorescent dyes. Alexa Fluor® 488 wheat germ agglutinin (Cat. no. W11261), a green-fluorescent lectin, 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-fluorescent Alexa Fluor® 568 phalloidin (Cat. no. A12380). Finally, the nuclei were counterstained with the blue-fluorescent DNA stain DAPI (Cat. no. D1306, D3571, D21490). This image is a composite of three micrographs acquired using filter sets appropriate for fluorescein, tetramethylrhodamine and DAPI.
