This video showcases a whole mouse brain prepared with tissue clearing techniques to make it transparent, and stained with a monoclonal antibody to detect β-Amyloid, a hallmark of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease.
Read the Cell Signaling Technology blog post to learn more about tissue clearing techniques, or view validation data and citations for the antibody used in this study, β-Amyloid (D54D2) XP® Rabbit mAb #8243.
Hallmarks of Neurodegeneration
Neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by a loss of neuronal structure and function that leads to problems with movement (ataxis) or mental function (dementia). These changes occur due to genetic mutations or protein folding disorders that can accumulate with age. While pathophysiologies like amyloid plaques are well documented, many of the cellular processes that drive neurodegeneration have yet to be fully elucidated. Defects in these key processes may be shared among different neurodegenerative diseases, making it likely that new therapies targeting one process may alleviate the progression of many conditions.
Cell Signaling Technology have put together a starter’s guide on the cellular mechanisms that drive neurodegeneration in diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Huntington’s Disease. Wondering how to identify the many different cell types that make up the Central Nervous System (CNS)? They also have a Cell Type Marker Guide!
