In vivo labeling of rabbit cholinergic basal forebrain neurons with fluorochromated antibodies


Cholinergic basal forebrain neurons (CBFN) expressing the low-affinity neurotrophin receptor p75 (p75(NTR)) were previously selectively labeled in vivo with carbocyanine 3 (Cy3)-tagged anti-p75(NTR), but the applied 192IgG-conjugates recognized p75(NTR) only in rat. The antibody ME 20.4 raised against human p75(NTR) had been shown to cross-react with the receptor in monkey, raccoon, sheep, cat, dog, pig and rabbit. Hence, for in vivo labeling of rabbit CBFN in the present study, ME 20.4 was…
