Anti C9orf72 Antibodies

Go to Antibodies for Neurodegenerative Disease Research page


Hexanucleotide expansions in C9orf72 gene was identified in patients with frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in 2011. GGGGCC expansions are characterised pathologically by the presence of TDP-43 negative and p62 positive inclusions in granule cells of cerebellum and in cells of dentate gyrus and CA4 area of the hippocampus. It was reported that these inclusions included dipeptide repeat proteins, poly-GA, poly-GR and poly GP, arising from a putative non-ATG initiated sense translation of the GGGGCC expansion. These antibodies are powerful tools for IHC analysis of neurodegenerative diseases.
