Abstract: Capsule application of Diamidino Yellow (DY) to the cut end of the sciatic nerve immediately followed by capsule application of Fast Blue (FB) resulted in approximate to 95% double-labelled dorsal root ganglion neurones (DRGn) and motoneurones (Mn). Nerve injection of DY followed either immediately or 2 months later by capsule application of FB resulted in approximate to 90% double-labelled DRGn and Mn, indicating that DY and FB label similar populations of DRGn and Mn, and that insignificant DY fading occurred during this period. Inversing the order of application, however, i.e. nerve injection of FB followed immediately by capsule application of DY, resulted in double labelling in only approximate to 10% of the DRGn and Mn. These percentages increased to 70% of the DRGn and 60% of the Mn when the FB injection was followed 1 or 2 months after by the DY application, indicating that DY uptake is blocked by recent administration of FB. The results indicate that DY and FB might be useful for sequential labelling before and after nerve injury as a tool to investigate the accuracy of sensory and motor regeneration.
