The temporal relationship between glycosaminoglycan (GAG) accumulation and amyloid deposition was determined in two models of amyloid induction. In the first model amyloid was induced rapidly using amyloid-enhancing factor and AgNO3 as an inflammatory stimulus. In the second model amyloid was induced by daily injections of azocasein. Congo red staining was used to demonstrate amyloid, and both the sulfated Alcian blue and Alcian blue (pH 5.7)-MgCl2 methods were used to demonstrate GAGs. In the… CONTINUE READING
