E18 mouse hippocampal neurons at day in vitro 15 (DIV15) are stained with anti-CAR (coxsackievirus adenovirus receptor) antibodies. The extracellular domain of CAR is labeled with RmcB and an anti-mouse (Alexa-488 green) and the intracellular tail of CAR is labeled with a rabbit polyclonal antibody with the secondary anti-rabbit (Alexa-647, red).
