Figure 5. Effects of age on expression patterns of neuronal and glial markers in marmosets. Confocal immunofluorescence images of cryosections of the modiolus regions of 2-year-old and 12-year-old marmosets. SGNs labeled with TUJ in the (A, A’) 2-year-old and (B, B’) 12-year-old marmosets. MAP2 positive neurons in the modiolus of the (C, C’) 2-year-old and (D, D’) 12-year-old marmosets. GFAP2 positive glia were in the (E, E’) 2-year-old and (F, F’) 12-year-old marmosets. Apoptosis was labelled by cleaved Caspase-3 in 2-year-old marmoset (G, G’) and 12-year-old marmoset (H, H’). Scale bar: 50 μm.
