Investigation of cellular metallic elements in single neurons of human brain tissues.

Abstract

The purpose of this report is to introduce the potential of synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence (SRXRF) spectroscopy, by describing the application of this method to mapping and quantification of metallic elements in neurons from brain tissues affected by Alzheimer's disease (AD). In this study, clear images of Fe, Zn and Ca within certain single… (More)
