Description: CRH neurons and PPG inputs have been labeled with genetically targeted fluorescent markers (Venus and tdTomato, respectively), while the AgRP inputs to the CRH neurons were immunolabled to allow visualization of these neurons and their projections in leptin-deficient mice, to determine how the hormone leptin directs formation of this neural circuitry during development.
