Plantaris tendon tissue proper (TP), peritendinous connective tissue (PT), and cultured tendon cells (TC) stained for NMDAR1 a, b, c, d and pNMDAR1 e, f, g, h: Examples of immunoreactions (arrows) can be observed in slender and rounded tenocytes in the tendon tissue proper a, b, e, f, in cultured tendon cells c, gand in cells in the peritendinous tissue d, h. Nuclei in c and g are stained with DAPI (blue). In i and j, control stainings replacing the primary rabbit i and goat j antibodies with PBS are shown. No positive reactions can be seen. Bars indicate 20 μm length
