Perivascular drainage of dextran. (a) Following active immunization with OVA, at 5 minutes after the intracerebral injection of OVA and 5 minutes after the injection of dextran (green), the distribution of dextran is diffuse in the extracellular spaces and within the walls of capillaries and arteries. The arrow points to an artery with smooth muscle staining (red). (b) Following active immunization with OVA, at 24 hours after the intracerebral injection of OVA, the dextran injected intracerebrally (green) is present within 5 minutes of its injection as cuffs around vascular laminin (red). (c) In mice actively immunized with OVA, at 7 days after the intracerebral injection of OVA, dextran (green) is in the walls of blood vessels (arrowhead) and present within cuffs around large blood vessels (arrow). (d) In mice actively immunized with OVA, at 7 days after the intracerebral injection of OVA and 24 h after the intracerebral injection of dextran (green), the dextran is present in cells within a perivascular location (red-laminin). Confocal images: co-localization appears as a yellow colour. Scale bars: a, b, d = 100 μm; c = 120 μm.
