  • Cell numbers in the dentate gyrus were determined in rats infected with pSFV(pd) vector either 6 d or 6 weeks after their last BrdU injection. Immunostaining was performed 48 hr after GFP expression. GFP+ BCs and GCs were classified using fluorescence microscopy, according to morphological criteria (see Materials and Methods).
