Fig. 1. Representative confocal images of postsynaptic neuromuscular junctions (NMJ) of single muscle fibers. From: Differences in Neuromuscular Junctions of Laryngeal and Limb Muscles in Rats.

Postsynaptic NMJ was identified by tetramethylrhodamine α-bungarotoxin (BTX) staining for acetylcholine receptors (AChR) in hindlimb soleus (SOL) and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles of the leg; and in laryngeal cricothyroid (CT), posterior cricoarytenoid (PCA), and thyroarytenoid (TA) muscles. NMJs in the PCA and TA muscle show more fragments. The pattern of postsynaptic NMJ in the CT muscle is similar to that in the limb muscles, especially the EDL. Bar=10μm.
