Description: 3-day culture of primary spiral ganglion cells isolated from 5D neonatal Sprague Dawley rats.This image shows a common phenomenon of spiral ganglion neuron processes being surrounded by glial cells that could play an important role in the nerve survival and signalling.Cells were visualised via immunocytochemistry. Labelled in green are two spiral ganglion neurons using Tuj1 as the primary antibody binding marker; in red are the glial cells using S100 beta as the primary antibody binding marker; all cell nuclei were stained with DAPI in blue.

Description: This image shows a quadruple immunostaining a of a whole-mount specimen of the adult murine endolymphatic sac (6 weeks old female C57BL/6J). Lymphatic vessels were stained with an anti-LYVE1 antibody (yellow). Concanavalin A (green) was used to mark blood vessels. The endolymphatic sac is outlined by epithelial staining using a pan-cytokeratin antibody (red). Cell nuclei are marked with DAPI (blue). Note that lymphatic (yellow) and blood vessels (red) form a “star-like” hub in the endolymphatic sac region
