This tells us how many cells in a section respond by production of c-Fos protein as a function of time. The other population of cells - non responding to light - would need to be visualized by any of the commonly used counterstaining methods and counted in addition to the ICC stained cells.

Dear Dr. Sumova,

Thanks for the information. Are the % of cells responding to linght/cells not responding to light at different times of the day have not been determined?
