Inflammatory response in astrocytes, but not microglia of 8 month old R26CT-CRE mice. Paraffin embedded brain sections from 8 month old R26CT and R26CT-CRE mice were dewaxed and stained with DAB using antibodies against ED1 or GFAP to label activated microglia and reactive astrocytes, respectively. 8 month old R26CT and R26CT-CRE show no ED1 staining in the hippocampus or cerebral cortex. R26CT mice also show no GFAP staining in either hippocampus or cerebral cortex. R26CT-CRE mice have GFAP staining in the hippocampus but not cerebral cortex. Scale bars represent 50 or 500 μm.
