Description: Confocal image (Zeiss Lsm 900). showing 6-week-old newborn neurons from a mouse hippocampal dentate gyrus, surrounded by microglial cells. Mice were injected with a retrovirus encoding PSD-95-GFP, an excitatory synapse marker. The image displays newly born neurons infected by this retrovirus. Immunohistochemical staining includes: - Anti-GFP: displayed in pink (used for the visualization of the entire neuron) - Anti-Iba1: shown in blue (used for microglia staining). - PSD95: observed in white (appearing as small dots within the neurons' dendrites).
