Description: This confocal image shows a late-stage bat star larva with a heavily innervated sensing complex (at the top of the image). Immunostaining with an anti-FMRFamide primary antibody (orange), phalloidin (purple), and DAPI (blue) highlight neural innervation, muscles, and cell nuclei, respectively. From top to bottom, this sea star larva is about 1 mm long and about 1 month old. Image taken on a Zeiss LSM 700 miscroscope.
