Accumulation of autophagic marker (LC3) and colocalization with hyperphosphorylated tau (Tau/pS422). Double immunofluorescence analysis on post-mortem tissues against (a-d) Tau/pS422 (red) and (e-h) LC3 (green). j-p Nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue, outlined with a white dashed line) in the merged pictures. e In control samples, LC3 staining is diffuse in the cytoplasm and LC3-positive dots are rarely observed (high magnification in (m) of the boxed area in i). j-l Arrowheads (and high magnifications, n-p) indicate cells showing accumulation of LC3 positive puncta in the perinuclear cytoplasm in FAD, CBD and PSP patients. Asterisks show colocalization in threads. In addition, FAD shows colocalization in tangle-like structures (j, n, arrows, see also SF. 2). q-s High magnification of the boxed areas in j-l showing colocalization of Tau/pS422 and LC3 in threads, respectively in FAD, CBD and PSP. Scale bars indicate 50 μm (i) and 25 μm (j-l); high magnification 10 μm (m-p) and 5 μm (q-s)
