Characterization of Dab2 expression within the EAE spinal cord. Immunoflourescent staining for Dab2 in the lumbar expansion in an EAE grade 3.0 C57B/6 wild-type mouse spinal cord. Representative confocal images show a: Dual epifluorescence image showing that the vast majority of CD11b-positive macrophages/microglia also stain positively for Dab2. Dab2-negative microglia (arrowhead). b: Dual epifluoresence image showing that a large proportion of GFAP-positive astrocytes also stain positively for Dab2 (arrows). c: Dual epifluoresence image showing that CD3-positive T-lymphocytes do not express Dab2 within inflammatory infiltrates. Scale bars represent 50 μm.
