Primary cells were isolated from the embryonic rat striatum and allowed to differentiate into neurons. Cells were fixed and immunostained with a monoclonal anti-b III tubulin (Cat# G7121), followed by and incubation with a secondary Cy-3TM conjugated anti-mouse IgG.

Human neuroblastoma SH-SY5Y cells treated with staurosporine are labeled with Anti-PARP p85 Fragment pAb (red) and Anti-bIII tubulin mAb (green). Only the apoptotic cells are labeled with the Anti-PARP p85 Fragment pAb.
