MOUSE SPINAL CORD REFERENCE ATLASES

Reference Atlases

These anatomical reference atlases illustrate the mouse spinal cord in adult and juvenile C57BL/6J mouse. They provide a spatial map for the Allen Mouse Spinal Cord Atlases of gene expression. Dr. Charles Watson and Dr, Gulgun Kayalioglu created a custom taxonomy for annotation of the spinal cord, covering cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral, and coccygeal segments.

Age P4

The 2D sagittal reference atlas is annotated on Nissl sections collected from a juvenile male C57BL/6J mouse, postnatal day 4 (P4). It provides the spatial context for in situ hybridization-based gene expression in Allen Mouse Spinal Cord Atlas.

34 transverse sections at 2 mm intervals

 

Age P56

The 2D sagittal reference atlas is annotated on Nissl sections collected from an adult male C57BL/6J mouse, postnatal day 56 (P56). It provides the spatial context for in situ hybridization-based gene expression in Allen Mouse Spinal Cord Atlas.

34 transverse sections at 2 mm intervals
