Peripheral nervous system of a Drosophila melanogaster embryo. Alexa Fluor 488 rabbit anti–mouse IgG antibody, Alexa Fluor 594 goat anti–rabbit IgG antibody and DAPI.
The peripheral nervous system of a wild-type (Canton-S) Drosophila melanogaster embryo labeled with the monoclonal 22c10 antibody (which detects a microtubule-associated protein) and subsequently visualized using green-fluorescent Alexa Fluor 488 rabbit anti–mouse IgG antibody (Cat. No. A11059). The actively dividing cells of the developing denticle bands were labeled with a rabbit anti–histone-H3 antibody and visualized using red-fluorescent Alexa Fluor 594 goat anti–rabbit IgG antibody (Cat. No. A11012). Finally, the nuclei, which are concentrated in the central nervous system, were counterstained with blue-fluorescent DAPI (Cat. No. D1306, D3571, D21490).
