Caption: Nerve cell trauma response. Fluorescent light micrograph of a section through a spinal cord affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). Reactive glial stem cells are producing the proteins OLIG2 (oligodendrocyte lineage transcription factor 2, green) and PDGFRA (platelet-derived growth factor receptor alpha, red) in an attempt to repair the damaged nerve cells. Cell nuclei are dyed blue. MS is an autoimmune condition, in which the immune system attacks nerve cells, impairing their ability to relay signals efficiently.
