Abstract

Diamidino yellow dihydrochloride (DY·2HCl) can reliably label spinothalamic tract cells both in the perfused, fixed and in the fresh, unfixed rat spinal cord. The major advantages of DY·2HCl as a retrograde marker are that it leaks from the cells very slowly and can be conveniently identified in unfixed neurons by fluorescence microscopy. DY·2HCl will be a useful marker for identification of spinothalamic tract cells that are to be studied in vitro.
