FLBs in various neural cells. a) Unstained section of the brain parenchyma of a CX3CR1GFP/+ mouse at d90 post-injection showing individual FLBs in a significant proportion of GFP+ ramified microglial cells; b-e) In brain of C57 mice at d21post-injection, FLBs were detected in F4/80+ perivascular macrophages (b), GFAP+ astrocytes (c), neurotrace®+ neurons (d), and vimentin+ pial cells (e); (bars: 10 μm). d, day; FLB, fluorescent latex beads.
