Dot blot reaction of the binding capacity of ASyO2 to fibrils, monomers and oligomers. Equal amounts of each sample were spotted on a nitrocellulose membrane and then dried. The membrane was blocked with 5% non-fat milk before incubated for 1 h with anti-ASyO2 (25nM) and then with secondary antibody, anti-mouse HRP-conjugated (1:1500). The membrane was washed with PBS containing 0.25% Tween-20 before detection using ECL prime (GE Healthcare).
Tissue sections from the human PD midbrain, substantia nigra, were de-waxed and rehydrated in ethanol and then incubated with ASyO2 at RT for 1h. The immunoreactivity was detected with the anti-mouse Peroxidase Reagent Kit (ImmPRESS, Vector Laboratories, Inc.) and then developed using the ImmPACT AEC Peroxidase Substrate kit (Vector Laboratories, Inc.).
Alpha-synuclein is normally an unstructured soluble protein that can aggregate to form insoluble fibrils in pathological conditions characterized by Lewy bodies, such as Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy-bodies, and multiple system atrophy. In analogy to many other amyloid associated disorders, alpha-synuclein may also form oligomeric assemblies. These small and soluble forms have been suggested to exert a stronger tissue damaging effect as compared to the monomeric and fibrillar counterpart. Using a recently developed technique a monoclonal oligomer-specific antibody has been designed.
