20 March 2015: Diagnostic Biosystems announces a new and improved mouse monoclonal antibody, Tau (Neurofibrillary Tangles Marker).

AntibodyCloneIsotypeVolumeCatalog No:
Tau (Neurofibrillary Tangles Marker)Tau46IgG10.5mLMob 472
1.0mLMob 472-05

Tau is a protein expressed in neuronal tissue and functions to promote microtubule assembly and stability and is thought to be involved in maintenance of neuronal polarity. It also plays a key role in microtubule stability and cytoskeletal plasticity. Defects in the gene encoding Tau are associated with Alzheimer's brain. Hyper phosphorylation of tau proteins leads to the assembly of tangled filaments that are implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease.

20 March 2015: Leica Biosystems is providing participants of the USCAP meeting in Boston, MA, March 21-27, 2015, with a rare opportunity to look inside Albert Einstein's brain.

Leica Biosystems invites attendees to come to the Best Brains in Pathology exhibit at booth #901 to explore over 500 slides of Einstein's brain and examine the Nobel Prize-winning physicist's neuroanatomy. The original slides were prepared by Dr. Thomas Harvey, who conducted the autopsy of Albert Einstein in 1955. These slides were scanned using an Aperio digital pathology scanner to capture the vast amount of information contained within the slides at a resolution high enough so that the slides can be stored safely away, while the data can be made available to everyone.

This remarkable collection of slides, in the form of an interactive display, is on loan from the National Museum of Health and Medicine, Chicago. Participants are encouraged to "Look inside Einstein's brain" at this year's meeting, and join with the greatest minds at USCAP to transform pathology together.
