Indian Muntjac Deer Skin Fibroblast Cells
In a double immunofluorescence experiment, the adherent monolayer culture of Indian Muntjac cells presented above was fixed, permeabilized, blocked with 10 percent normal goat serum, and treated with a cocktail of mouse anti-histones (pan) and rabbit anti-PMP 70 (peroxisomal membrane protein) primary antibodies, followed by goat anti-mouse and anti-rabbit secondary antibodies (IgG) conjugated to Texas Red and Alexa Fluor 488, respectively. Alexa Fluor 350 conjugated to a phallotoxin, phalloidin, was utilized to counterstain the actin cytoskeleton. Images were recorded in grayscale with a 12-bit digital camera coupled to either a Nikon E-600 or Eclipse 80i microscope equipped with bandpass emission fluorescence filter optical blocks. During the processing stage, individual image channels were pseudocolored with RGB values corresponding to each of the fluorophore emission spectral profiles.
