Lectin from cholera toxin (CTB lectin) used to stain mouse brain frozen tissue sections. Adult mouse brain stained with cholera toxin B sub-unit (1:100 dilution in 0.1% PBS-T) and viewed using Leica DM1 AF6000B. Green dots are cells with glycolipids that are recognized by CTB lectin. Glycolipids are lipids with sugar chains attached to them, these are present in the cell membrane and are important for recognition and internalization of toxins into cells.
