Description

Fluorescent micrograph showing a section of ferret choroid plexus infected with Canine Distemper Virus (CDV). CDV is a common and highly infectious disease that affects ferrets dogs and foxes among other animals and is very similar to the measles virus. It is highly symptomatic and causes respiratory problems along with neurological issues, which is where it gets its name from the French 'destemprer', meaning to disturb. This image shows a region of the choroid plexus from an infected ferret. This is a region of the brain situated next to the cerebellum and is responsible for the production of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The image shows CDV (green) and ZO1 a tight junction protien (red). Cell nuclei are highlight with DAPI staining (blue).
