Fig. 2

Vascular and parenchymal C-terminal truncated Aβ deposits were detected in FAD. Aβ37 and Aβ42 could be detected in parenchymal Aβ deposits, while Aβ39 showed only vascular immunoreactivity in an APP-Swe case (a-c). Abundant Aβ37-, Aβ38- and Aβ39-immunoreactivity could be demonstrated in meningeal vessels in an APP-Arc mutation carrier (d-f). A case with the PSEN ΔEx9 mutation showed robust Aβ37- and Aβ40-positive extracellular deposits, while Aβ39-immunoreactivity was restricted to vascular compartments (g-i). A case with the APP I716F mutation revealed abundant Aβ37 vascular staining, but only limited Aβ39- and Aβ42-immunoreactivity (j-l). Scale bar: a-c, g-l: 100 μm; d-f: 50 μm
