Marquage de récepteurs activés par le glutamate, dans des neurones d'hippocampe de rat

Marking of a neurotransmitter receptor and a cell overexpressing a receptor labelled with a green jellyfish protein, observed using full-field fluorescence imaging. These AMPA-type receptors, activated by glutamate, are observed in cultures of rat hippocampus neurons. Sub-units of these receptors are marked in green (sub-unit GluA1) and red (GluA2). A single neuron expresses GluA1 (in green) while all of the neurons in the culture express GluA2 (in red). The co-expression of GluA1 and GluA2 in a single synapsis produces a yellow marking.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
