Figure 3

Cellular counts and Western blots quantification of TDP-43 cytoplasmic accumulation. a) Percentage of cell with positive cytoplasmic TDP-43 inclusions. 200 nuclei were counted for each of the generated tissue-engineered skins. *correspond to a P value < 0.01. b) Subcellular fractionation (cytoplasmic fraction vs nuclear fraction) of total protein extracted from ALS-fibroblast (2D culture), control-derived TES, C9ORF72-derived TES and SALS-derived TES (n = 5 for each group) was performed and loaded on a regular SDS-PAGE. TDP-43 expression in each fractionated sample was quantified using ImageJ after normalization against actin. Equal amount of proteins was used as shown on western blots after. *correspond to a P value < 0.05.
