Dorsal root ganglion neurites (labeled with anti-tubulin antibody) were analyzed for length and integrity. Healthy neurites
are green and segmented (degenerating) neurites are red. The chemotherapeutic agent vincristine causes degeneration
(center panel). Myelin protects neurites from vincristine toxicity (right panel).

Dorsal root ganglia triple-labelled with anti-ganglioside mAbs (green), neurofilament (red) and IB-4 (blue). Co-localization of three labels is also shown (Merged). The mAbs included in this figure are shown on the left. Bar = 20 mm.

Binding of radiolabeled ganglioside ligand to receptors in the rat brain. Left: Rat brain section stained with cresyl violet. Right: Adjacent section treated with 125I-GT1b-BSA, washed, and subjected to autoradiography. Note prominent white matter but not gray matter distribution of ganglioside receptors.
