Effect of soy isoflavones on Aβ deposits in transgenic C. elegans. A. Representative images of thioflavin S staining in the transgenic (left) or wild type (right) worms. B. Quantitative Aβ formation. β amyloid were stained with thioflavin S in C. elegans CL2006 fed with or without isoflavones (100 μg/ml) for 4 days starting at the second day of age. β amyloid were examined using a fluorescence microscope. The quantity of β amyloid is expressed as mean number of Aβ deposits/worm head area (n = 24).
