Nesting Staining of Grafted Human Neural Progenitor Cells

We would like to thank Dr. Rike Zietlow of Cardiff University for generously providing us this image.

Image: Nestin (Catalog# GT15012) staining of human neural progenitor cells grafted into the rat brain, 24 weeks post-op. One is of processes running along the host corpus callosum, one of cells in the hippocampus, weakly counterstained with human nuclear antigen (brown). Nestin concentration was 1:1000, overnight at room temp, visualised using the DAKO vector SG kit.

APJ (Apelin Receptor) in the Gut


Great Image of our APJ-Catalog#:MO15011
Image: Confocal microscopy of rabbit gastric gland distinguishing the distribution of HDC and the apelin receptor. Green pseudocolor: FITC-coupled polyclonal anti-HDC ab. Red pseudocolor: TRITC-coupled monoclonal anti-APJ receptor ab. Two cells in this gland show specific anti-AJP receptor and anti-HDC staining. Right: a higher magnification scan of the cell in the top right corner of the left panel showing peripheral APJ receptor localization and central perinuclear HDC staining. Physiol. Genomics 25: 153-165, 2006

Figure 2. Testosterone and Mullerian inhibiting substance (MIS) do not have deleterious effects on enteric nervous system (ENS) precursor proliferation, differentiation, or survival. A-D: Cultured immunoselected embryonic day (E) 12.5 C57BL/6 ENS precursors were grown for 24 hr with or without glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), testosterone, or MIS. A-C: Triple-label immunohistochemistry was performed with antibodies to Ret (A), neuron-specific beta III tubulin (TuJ1; B), or histone 3 phosphate (H3P; C). D: Shows the merged image. Arrowheads show a Ret+ TuJ1+ H3P- cell. Arrows identify a cell with a punctate nuclear staining pattern characteristic of H3P immunohistochemistry. Both TuJ1 and H3P antibodies were generated in rabbits, but easily were distinguished based on characteristic staining patterns. E,H: Quantitative analysis of TuJ1 immunoreactivity in Ret+ cells shows that treatment with testosterone or MIS does not alter expression of the neuronal differentiation marker recognized by TuJ1 in the presence or absence of GDNF. F,I: Quantitative analysis of proliferation (H3P+ cells) shows that neither testosterone nor MIS influences proliferation of Ret+TuJ1+ cells in the presence or absence of GDNF. G,J: Quantitative analysis of proliferating Ret+TuJ1- cell demonstrates increased proliferation in response to testosterone, but not MIS in the absence of GDNF. There was no additive effect of testosterone plus GDNF under these conditions. Asterisks indicate P < n =" 3" bar =" 50">

GDF-3 and Cancer, Diabetes

We have just added a new GDF-3 to our BMPs/GDFs antibodies category.

Image: GDF Staining of mouse thymus. Tissue was stained with goat HRP-DAB (brown) and counterstained with Hematoxylin (blue

Description: The TGFp superfamily of ligands plays key functions in development and disease. In both human and mouse embryonic stem cells, a member of this family, GDF3, is specifically expressed in the pluripotent state. We show thatGDF3 is an inhibitor of its own subfamily, blocks classic BMP signaling in multiple contexts, interacts with BMP proteins and is expressed specifically in the node during gastrulation in a pattern consistent with BMP inhibition. Furthermore, we use gain- and reduction-of-function to show that in a species-specific manner, GDF3 regulates both of the two major characteristics of embryonic stem cells: the ability to maintain the undifferentiated state and the ability to differentiate into the full spectrum of cell.

GDF-3 is suspected to be expressed in certain forms of cancer. These could include Breast and Testicular Cancer (Link).
