Host species: Goat
In the upper HP image of rat hippocampus, Astrocytes (by my morphological assessment) are clearly identified (red arrowheads indicate three). The blue arrowhead indicates a capillary in L/S that clearly shows two cells in very close proximity to the bv: their processes appear to be enveloping the capillary: by definition, these must be astrocytes?
In the lower image of the cortex (pyramidal cell layer), astrocytes and their processes are clearly seen (red arrowheads indicate three). The middle arrowhead shows two cell bodies in very close approximation: in anti GFAP-immunostained brains it seems to me that this is an occassional feature of Astrocytes.
Note that, in this grey matter, there appears to be no other possitivity with this Ab, unlike in white matter. In the latter, oligodendrocytes, imho, appear to be positive with this Ab.
Please see my mouse review images that, imho, shows clear oligodendrocyte positivity.
