Figure 1.

p75NTR receptor is expressed in the epithelial cells from choroid plexus. A) Figure 1A shows p75NTR staining of epithelial cells from choroid plexus in vitro with p75NTR-ECD antibody (9651) donated by M. Chao and B Carter. The expression is mainly in the cytoplasm of the cells an immunofluorescence (red) and the nucleus is staining with DAPI. B) Figure 1B shows p75NTR staining of human choroid plexus with p75NTR-ECD antibody (9651) (upper panel). The bottom panel shows p75NTR staining developed with DAB and shows the p75NTR expression in the cytoplasm and in the apical membrane of mouse choroid plexus corresponding with CSF side of epithelial cells. C) Western blot analysis of homogenates from primary culture cells from epithelial cells of choroid plexus (left) and mouse choroid plexus tissue (right). Representative blots are shown
