Alpha (alpha)-synuclein is a presynaptic protein, abnormal expression of which has been associated with neurodegenerative and neoplastic diseases. It is abundant in the developing vertebrate central nervous system (CNS), but less is known about its developmental expression in the human CNS. Immunohistochemical expression of alpha-synuclein was studied in 39(More)
BACKGROUND The FilmArray Respiratory Panel (RP) detects multiple pathogens, including Bordetella pertussis. The multiplex PCR system is appropriate for a core laboratory or point of care due to ease of use. The purpose of this study is to compare the analytical sensitivity of the FilmArray RP, which targets the promoter region of the B. pertussis toxin(More)
Alpha-synuclein (alpha-synuclein) is a member of a family of cytoplasmic proteins found predominantly and abundantly in the brain, and concentrated in pre-synaptic nerve terminals, near vesicles. We hypothesized that an antibody to alpha-synuclein could be a useful marker of neuronal differentiation in central nervous system (CNS) tumors. Twenty tumors(More)
