From: Wallerian-like axonal degeneration in the optic nerve after excitotoxic retinal insult: an ultrastructural study

Figure 3

Ultrastructural appearance of RGCs 24 hrs after NMDA injection shows (A, Bar = 5 μm) early dense appearance of the cell (rgc) cytoplasm with dendritic swelling (d) and normal euchromatic nucleus with a prominent nucleolus (B, Bar = 2 μm). Notice the dilatation of mitochondrion (m) and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) as well as some scattered ribosomes (r) in the cytoplasm (C, Bar = 2 μm).
