Plantaris tendon tissue proper (TP), peritendinous connective tissue (PT), and cultured tendon cells (TC) stained for VGluT2: Examples of immunoreactions (arrows) are seen in slender and rounded tenocytes in the tendon tissue proper a, b, in cultured tendon cells (green; d) and in cells in the peritendinous tissue e. VGluT2 mRNA was located in tenocytes c and peritendinous cells f in tissue sections, as verified by in situ hybridization. Nuclei in d are stained with DAPI (blue). Bars indicate 20 μm length
