Targeting Talk

  • Can you tell me how I would calculate the amount of a SAP-type targeted toxin that I might want to buy based on a desire to bilaterally kill cells of interest within a typical diffusion zone around an injection site in a rodent brain? Use CRF-SAP (Cat. #IT-13) as an example. Are we talking a few hundred dollars to run 40 animals or thousands of dollars?
  • Will one injection permanently and reliably accomplish the deed?
  • What are the typical criticisms (e.g., perhaps related to non-specific effects or interpretive difficulties) that the use of such products engender?
