The advantages of axonally transported Fluoro-Gold as a retrograde fluorescent marker are numerous. The objective of the present study was to determine whether transported Fluoro-Gold is visible in either semi-thin sections for light microscopy or thin sections for electron microscopy. Rats received injections of Fluoro-Gold into either the striatum or thoracic spinal cord. After appropriate survival times, labelled neurons were observed with the fluorescence microscope in brain regions that… CONTINUE READING
