ELAV gene expression identifies neuronal somata in the brains of O. bimaculoides hatchlings. ac Midline section taken through hatchling brain, with the mouth to the left. df High-power view of the transition between the rind of neuronal cell bodies and the neuropil core of the subesophageal mass. Section was double-stained for (a and d) anti-acetylated alpha-tubulin (acTUBA) and (b and e) ELAV gene expression. c and f In silico merging of fluorescence and light microscopic images. es, esophagus; subes, subesophageal mass; supes, supraesophageal mass. Scale bars: 100 μm (a) and 50 μm (d)
