In a previous post I discussed 3 new unique research tools for analyzing Amyloid peptide in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Today, I’d like to come back to the unique properties of the Amylo-Glo® fluorescent substrate which makes Amyloid plaque staining “better, easier and faster”.
Methods commonly used for the characterization of iPS or ES cells are based on specific antibody staining. Nevertheless, undifferentiated stem cell populations can also be characterized by high levels of both Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) and Aldehyde Dehydrogenase (ALDH) activities.
Liver fibrosis is the result of an imbalance between production and dissolution of extracellular matrix. It has been described that Stellate cells, liver myofibroblasts, and bone marrow derived cells converge in a complex interaction with hepatocytes and immune cells to induce response to liver injury.
