Analysis of cerebral amyloid angiopathy in a transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer disease using in vivo multiphoton microscopy.


Transgenic mice overexpressing the human amyloid precursor protein (APPV717F) develop cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) as they age. We have examined the effect of CAA on blood vessels in vivo using multiphoton laser scanning microscopy. We are able to simultaneously detect, in an alive but anesthetized animal, fluorescent angiography of microvessels as… (More)
