Expression of EGFP in the GAD67-GFP knock-in mouse. (Left) Fluorescent photomicrograph of a sagittal section of the GAD67-GFP knock-in mouse brain (4 weeks old) shows scattered distribution of EGFP in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex. (Right) Fluorescent photomicrograph of a sagittal section of the GAD67-GFP knock-in mouse cerebellar cortex (4 weeks old). Arrowheads in the right panels show Golgi cells. Merged images include nuclear staining with DAPI (blue). CA1-3, CA1-3 fields of Ammon’s horn; DG, dentate gyrus; Gr, granule cell layer of cerebellar cortex; MO, molecular layer of cerebellar cortex; PC, Purkinje cell layer. Scale bars: left, 500 µm; right, 50 µm. Photographs were provided by Dr. Ryosuke Kaneko, Gunma University.
