Extensor digitorum longus motoneurons in the rat spinal cord were identified by retrograde labeling with two fluorescent tracers, Fast blue (FB) and Nuclear yellow (NY). Labeled motoneurons had a blue fluorescent cytoplasm at 360 nm excitation wavelength with FB, and a golden-yellow fluorescent nucleus with NY on the cryostat section. Labeled motoneurons… CONTINUE READING
