Figure 2

Neuronal nuclei isolated from adult brain via FACS. (A) Digitized images of nuclei extracted from forebrain of adult (a-d) CAMIIK-H2B-GFP transgenic mice, and (e-j) wild type mice labeled with NeuN immunoreactivity, as indicated pre and post (FACS sorting), and after pelleting. Green channel for (a, c) GFP or (e, g, i) NeuN; blue channel for DAPI. Notice that post-FACS samples are comprised entirely of neuronal nuclei. Bar = 20 μm. (B) Representative FACS scatter plots from (a) negative control (NC) processed without NeuN antibody, and (b) sample processed with NeuN antibody (NeuN).
