Musashi aggregates in AD (a) Representative Epifluorescence images of AD and control cortices immunolabeled with α-MSI1, DAPI (blue, for nuclei) (top) and α-Msi1 (green) and α-Oligomer antibody (F11G3, red) (bottom). An increased MSI1 oligomeric signal was noticed in the cytoplasm of AD brains cortices (white arrows) (b) The quantified fluorescence intensity, represented as bar graph demonstrates significantly elevated level of MSI1 signal in AD cortices compared to the controls (N = 3 sections per condition, p = 0.007, **). (c) α-Oligomer antibody (F11G3, red), α-MSI2 antibody (green) and DAPI (nuclei, blue) immunostaining revealed MSI2 oligomers, mostly in the cytoplasm of AD brains cortices (white arrows) (N = 3 sections per condition and magnification: 40X, scale bar: 10 μm). (d) The fluorescence intensity of MSI2, represented as bar graph reveal significantly elevated levels of MSI2 signal in AD cortex compared to the control (N = 3 sections per condition, p = 0.0001, ****)
