This image characterizes the neuronal profile of a rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG). Retrograde dye (blue) was injected into the proximal periosteum of the tibia and given 7 days to travel retrogradedly along the saphenous nerve to the DRG. The tissue was removed and immunohistochemistry performed; neurons were stained red with mu-opioid receptor antibody and green with IB4 antibody. Quantitative analysis is then performed to determine the amount of neuronal cells that are colocalized (blue with green or red).
