Van Andel Research Institute | Scientific Report Astrocytes in mouse retina An epifluorescent image of a mouse retina at postnatal day 7, showing astrocytes stained green with glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP, which measures activated glial cells) and endothelial blood vessel cells stained red with GSA lectin. The image shows the intricate guidance pattern between the astrocytes and the vasculature in the superficial layer of the retina. Red dots are sprouting blood vessels seen in cross section as they penetrate to other retinal layers. Original magnification, 400×. Photo by Jennifer Bromberg-White of the Duesbery lab. 46
