Table 1 Immunofluorescence detection of PrPres on capillaries, arteries and veins in scrapie-infected Tg44+/+ mice

From: Unusual cerebral vascular prion protein amyloid distribution in scrapie-infected transgenic mice expressing anchorless prion protein

Vesselsa Nb %
Capillaries 111 73
Arteries 21 14
Veins 20 13
Total 152 100
Artery to Vein (A/V) ratio 1.05 to 1
  1. a - Vessels were defined as described in the Methods section.
  2. b - N = number of PrP-res-positive vessels of each type detected in the total area counted. Total area counted was 7.5 mm2 . Data are from 4 individual mice, which were analyzed between 250–280 days post-infection with RML scrapie as described in the Methods.
