Astrocyte cell from live slices taken from the cortex layer 2/3 of an 8 month old GFAP mouse. In this mouse the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) under the control of the human glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) promoter (line TgN(GFAP-EGFP)GFEC-FKi). In the image, you can clearly see cell the body, astrocyte cloud and astrocyte projection on vascular tube crossing astrocyte cloud (left and up from cell body). This image an individual z slice. Another z slice is available as CIL 39753, and the projection of 30 slices is available as CIL 30751.
