Presynaptic Targeting of GFP-VAMP in a Transfected Neuron
The experiment shows the distribution of a recombinant version of a synaptic vesicle protein, i.e. GFP-tagged VAMP/Synaptobrevin (green), in a transfected neuron (left). All neurons are stained using MAP2 (magenta), to show their dendrites and soma. GFP-VAMP puncta observed in the right part of the field of view represent synaptic vesicle accumulations in the axon of the transfected neuron.
