Transverse section through the mouse spinal cord two weeks after transplantation of bNCSCs to the avulsed lumbar spinal cord (a) and on the surface of non-avulsed spinal cord (b). eGFP-positive bNCSCs are located in the peripheral compartment of the dorsal root as well as within the host spinal cord (a) but only on the surface when dorsal roots were not avulsed (b). Blue, GFAP, red, microtubule-associated protein (MAP)2. b. Transplanted NCSCs are green (eGFP). Scale bar = 400 μm.
