Reference for Size Classification of Dorsal Root Ganglia Neurons in Mouse


#1

Does anyone have a paper that classifies mouse DRG neurons based on size? That is, what is considered “small size”, "medium size’, “large size”?

I found one recent paper that provided a size classification. It seems reasonable:

  • < 300 um = small
  • 300-600 um =medium
  • 600+ um = large

Alex is right, but someone thinks 400-600 is medium in mice.

This is the paper that I always use as reference for size classification of murine DRG neurons:


. < 300 um = small
. 300-700 um = medium
. > 700 um = large

Thanks Temo. I really like that paper.
