The image submitted depicts oligodendrocyte differentiation from adult neural stem and progenitors cells. The blue colour in the image represents the cells nuclei whereas the red colour represents O4, a marker for oligodendrocyte. This was achieved by isolating cells and then differentiating using foetal bovine serum for three days. Subsequently, immunocytochemistry was performed and images were obtained by confocal microscopy.
