Mammalian visual cortex is immature at birth and develops gradually during defined postnatal temporal windows. In the present work, we studied the maturation of astrocytes in developing mouse visual cortex (VC). The cellular distribution and the level of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) were analyzed by immunohistochemistry and Western blotting. Experiments were performed at different postnatal ages: postnatal day 12 (P12), before eye opening; P24, corresponding roughly to the peak of the… CONTINUE READING
