Neuromuscular junction showing the association of the nerves and the muscle fibres. This image is taken from a Drosophila larva and shows the neuromuscular junctions stained with green fluorescence protein (GFP) in association with the muscle fibres in red. The muscle is stained with an antibody which provides the red colour and also shows the striated pattern of the contractile filaments (sarcomers) of the muscle.

Diagnostic test for Fragile X, using presence (normal) or absence (Fragile X syndrome) of FMR-1 protein. FMR-1 protein expression in blood cells has been made visible with antibodies against the FMR-1 protein. The presence of FMR-1 protein is made visible as red staining. a: red staining in cells of normal individual. b/c: absence of staining in male patient. d: female patient; one cell is showing staining and in the other cell there is an absence of staining - this individual is a carrier.
