Description: Wistar rats were fed with fructose for 12 weeks. Coronal sections (10 um) of the dentate gyrus (hippocampus) were obtained using a freezing microtome. Slices were incubated with antibodies against Il-1b (green) and GFAP (red) as well as with DAPI (blue). Images were acquired on a Nikon A1R+ Storm confocal microscope.
