ABOUT THIS ANTIBODY
anti-acetylated tubulin labels axonal tracts. Please see our separate white matter section for more information about individual tracts and commissures.
This is a beautiful antibody and like anti-SV2 makes a nice general counterstain when looking at neuroanatomy in transgenic larvae. We also use this antibody extensively to look for any defects in brain development in mutant larvae.
