TEM sample 1Rat mossy fibers were retrogradely labeled with electron dense biotinylated dextrane amine (BDA), allowing visualization of the terminals in the granule cell domain of the lateral reticular and spinal trigeminal nucleus of the brainstem.  Image courtesy of Tan Pongstaporn and David Ryugo.
TEM Sample 2Montage of a large mossy fiber terminal taken using the AMT automontage function and Panavue software for automatic assembly and registration of montage frames.  Image courtesy of Tan Pongstaporn and David Ryugo.
TEM Sample 3Toxoplasma gondii organisms causing extensive degeneration of the retina. A pseudocyst contains several organisms (tachyzoites) which are bounded by a double layer pellicle.  The organisms are at various proliferative stages and contain numerous electron dense membrane-bound lysosomes and elongate cord-like structures (micronemes).  Image courtesy of Aida de la Cruz and WR Green.
TEM Sample 4In a sampled area of a cellular membrane adjacent to the inner surface of the retina, fibrous astrocytes with a basal lamina, several junctional densities and numerous bundles of intermediate filaments is adjacent to a layer of newly synthesized collagen.
