The distribution and cellular localization of connexin32 (Cx32) in the brain and spinal cord of the mouse and rat was investigated by light microscope (LM) and electron microscope (EM) immunohistochemistry by using several different antibodies against Cx32. By double immunofluorescence staining for Cx32 and either the oligodendrocyte markers cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase (CNPase) or Rip, Cx32 was consistently found in oligodendrocyte cell bodies and proximal processes. Cx32… CONTINUE READING
