Neurons Used for Drug Testing

Caption: Neurons generated from neural stem cells. These are the cells, which were used for drug testing. They show the typical neuronal morphology with long processes. Again, this is an immunofluorescence analysis, this time with antibodies to the neuronal proteins beta-III-tubulin (green) and tau (red); many processes contain both proteins and thus appear yellow.
