Fig. 1

Morphology of confluent primary mouse choroid plexus epithelial cells (pmCPECs). Representative phase contrast pictures of cells plated directly after choroid plexus dissection and cell disaggregation and cultured in complete growth medium for 8 days. The pmCPECs exhibit a predominant polygonal morphology with rare unprocessed tissue remnants (asterisk) visible in a and occasional dome like cell aggregates (asterisk) visible in b. The contrast of picture a was enhanced using Adobe Photoshop software. Scale bar in a = 50 μm and in b = 100 μm
