Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Iron accumulates in axons and oliogodendrocyte cell bodies of Ireb2tm1.1Eal/Ireb2tm1.1Eal (Irp2-/-) mice. Increased diaminobenzidine (DAB)-enhanced Perls' iron stain is observed in small cells that have an eccentric nucleus characteristic of oliogodendrocyte morphology and in axons in A) cerebral cortex, B) caudate putamen, C) superior colliculus, D) substantia nigra, and E) cerebellum. Arrows, oligodendrocytes; S, striosomes; wm, white matter; gl, granule layer. Scale bars: 50 um and 500 um.
