Neurodegenerative Disorders

Neurodegenerative Disorders
Despite a diverse array of clinical manifestations and affected genes, many of the common neurodegenerative disorders share a similar molecular mechanism. Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), Huntington's disease (HD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and prion disease are each characterized by the aggregation of mutated or misfolded proteins into amyloid inclusion bodies. Aggregation results when the accumulation of misfolded proteins exceeds the cell's ability to eliminate them via the ubiquitin-proteasome degradation pathway. Some evidence suggests that these inclusions may represent a cellular defense mechanism intended to sequester toxic oligomers or to induce autophagic elimination of the diseased proteins. Effective future strategies for treatment of these neurodegenerative disorders rely on the understanding of the basic pathways affected in these disorders.
 
Disease Type of Aggregation Subcellular Affected Protein Brain Region Affected
Alzheimer's Disease (AD) Neuritic Plaques Extracellular Amyloid beta peptide Cortex, hippocampus, basal forebrain, brain stem
Neurofibrillary tangles Intracellular Hyperphosphorylated Tau
Parkinson's Disease (PD) Lewy Body Intracellular (Cytoplasm) α-Synuclein Substantia nigra, cortex, locus ceruleus, rephe (dopaminergic neurons)
Huntington's Disease (HD) Intranuclear inclusions & cytoplasmic aggregates Intracellular Huntingtin with polyglutamate expansion Striatum, basal ganglia, cortex, others
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Bonina bodies and axonal spheroids Intracellular (Cytoplasm) Various ALS genes Spinal motor neurons and motor cortex
Prion Disease Amyloid Plaque Intracellular & Extracellular Prion protein Cortex, brain stem, thalamus, cerebellum, other

beta Amyloid

GeneTex’s “beta-Amyloid (1-42) antibody – Conformation-Specific” can specifically detect amyloid plaques in the Alzheimer's Disease brain by IHC-P analysis. The superior specificity and sensitivity of this antibody were confirmed by dot blot, ELISA and side-by-side IHC-P comparison with competitor's.
