Phenotype Image Detail
Caption A-H: Immunohistochemical analysis using GFAP staining on brains from control (A-D) and Gbatm2Karl/Gbatm2Karl Tg(KRT14-cre)8Brn/? mice (K14-lnl/lnl, E-H). I-P: Microglia staining for the Iba-1 marker in brains of control (I-L) and mutant mice (M-P). Mutant mice display increased GFAP staining in the cortex (F) and hippocampus (G). Pronounced staining was observed within hippocampal regions, CA3, dentate gyrus (DG), and thalamus (H). I and J: Iba-1 staining revealed the homogeneous presence of resting microglia throughout the brain of control mice. In contrast, massive activation of microglia is detected in mice lacking Gba in different brain regions (M). Cortical layer V is the most severely affected cortical region(N). Microglial activation is restricted to CA2, CA3 and DG regions of the hippocampus while the CA1 region is relatively spared (O). The thalamic or the hypothalamic region of mutant mice demonstrated a profound microglia repsonse (P). All mice were about 2 weeks old at analysis. Scale bar: A, E, I and M, 600um; B-D, F-H, J-L and N-P, 200um.
