Szigeti C, Bencsik N, Simonka AJ, Legradi A, Kasa P, Gulya K (2013) Long-term effects of selective immunolesions of cholinergic neurons of the nucleus basalis magnocellularis on the ascending cholinergic pathways in the rat: A model for Alzheimer’s disease. Brain Res Bull 94C:9-16. doi: 10.1016/j.brainresbull.2013.01.007
Summary: 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) has been used extensively to generate models of Alzheimer’s disease in rats. In this work, the authors detailed the time course of neuronal loss with an eye on potential recovery from the lesion. The nucleus basalis magnocellularis of rats was injected with 75 ng of 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) and long-term changes were tracked by immunohistochemistry. While some acetylcholinesterase neurons, considered cholinoceptive, were lost, choline acetyltransferase (cholinergic) neurons sustained a massive irreversible reduction in number.
