NeonMice

NEUROLOGY 

A proprietary line of mice genetically engineered by workers at Anti-Cancer, Inc, San Diego, in which the hair follicles are tagged with a fluorescent marker to glow in UV light.

Unexpectedly, both hirsute and hairless skin lit up, meaning that the fluorescent stem cells of interest are also present in hairless skin, paving the way for facile harvesting of stem cells to use in nerve regeneration in the future.
