Additional file 6: Figure S6. of Anterograde monosynaptic transneuronal tracers derived from herpes simplex virus 1 strain H129

Invasion and transmission of H129-G4 in the VPM-S1 circuit. (a) Simplified schema of the VPM-S1 circuit. VPM, ventral posteromedial thalamic nucleus; nRT, nucleus of reticular thalamus; S1, primary somatosensory cortex; IV, V and VI, layer 4, 5 and 6 of the cortex. (b) Representative tracing results of H129-G4 in VPM-S1 circuit. H129-G4 (1 × 106 pfu in 200 nl) was injected into the VPM of wild-type C57BL/6 mice together with Alexa Fluor 594-conjugated CTB (CTB, red). The animals were perfused at the indicated time points, and representative images of the coronal brain slice at the VPM-S1 regions are shown. The boxed areas are magnified and presented in the right panel. The layers of the S1 cortex were determined according to NeuN staining and indicated by the dotted lines. (PDF 503 kb)
