A) Astrocytes sheathe with their end feet a blood vessel in the hippocampus (staining against GFAP). B) Postsynaptic currents recorded from a GluR cell (-80 mV) in the hippocampus upon subthreshold neuronal stimulation (Ref. 3). C) Whole cell current pattern of the cell used in B. D) Post-recording triple fluorescence confocal analysis of the cell used in B and C. This weakly EGFP-positive GluR cell (blue; juvenile hGFAP-EGFP mouse) was filled with Texas red dextran during recording (green) and stained against NG2 (red) (cf. Ref. 3).
