Abstract

Cobalt staining of primary afferents in frog spinal cord was combined with peroxidase‐antiperoxidase pre‐embedding or immunogold post‐embedding immunocytochemical labelling. Our results have shown that cobalt labelling can easily be distinguished from both of the immunoreaction end products. The protocol of cobalt labelling did not affect the immunoreactivity of structures. The morphology and synaptology of cobalt labelled and immunostained profiles in our sections were very similar to those reported in previous studies using different double labelling techniques. These results indicate that this new combined method could be used as an alternative double labelling technique in electron microscopic studies on nervous tissues. © 1994 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
