Description: Imaged by Amany Emam. This is a phalloidin staining of seven days post-fertilization Surface fish (Astyanax mexicanus). It is whole-body staining that shows the actin and muscle tissues in the brain, retina, and spinal cord. The image was captured in a SP8 confocal (Leica, United States) and processed using LAS X software (Leica). The z-stack was converted to a maximum projection.
