Abstract

Fluorescent carbocyanine dye was applied to the glossopharyngeal nerve of axolotls fixed with paraformaldehyde. Three cell types in the lingual epithelium were transneuronally labeled: chemosensory taste receptor cells and presumably mechanosensory basal cells in the taste buds, and epithelial cells with unknown function in the non-taste lingual epithelium.
