Shown are confocal microscopy reconstructions of rI7 right arrow M71 glomeruli from coronal sections of the main olfactory bulb. a, Immunofluorescent image of an rI7 right arrow M71 glomerulus labelled with taulacZ and GFP and stained with antibody to beta-galactosidase (orange), and YFP-labelled mitral cells (green) show innervation of the rI7 right arrow M71 glomerulus. b, Enlargement of the boxed region in a shows that the rI7 right arrow M71 glomerulus colocalizes with mitral cell dendrites (arrows). c, GFP-labelled rI7 right arrow M71 glomerulus (green) innervated by rhodamine-labelled tufted cells (red). Arrowhead marks the soma of an innervating external tufted cell. d, Enlargement of the boxed region in c shows colocalization of rI7 right arrow M71 glomerulus and tufted cell dendrites (arrows). Scale bar, 50 microm.
