Microglia are the resident immune cells of the brain parenchyma and arise from the myeloid lineage. The role microglia play in maintenance of a healthy brain and decline of the brain in disease has become an intensively studied topic but much remains to be understood.
Since antibodies are already developed in mice, rabbits, chickens, goats, guinea pigs... why do we need another animal host for making antibodies? Having antibodies from different hosts facilitates multiplex labeling by microscopy and also offers flexibility with respect to project cost and the amount of antibody produced, but Camelid antibodies are set apart from those above with their unique structure and uses.
Megan Hans, M.Sc. describes LRRK2's biological function and role in signaling, as well as the possible connection of mutations in the LRRK2 gene with Parkinson's Disease. LRRK2 is being targeted for research into diagnostics and therapeutics, with Antibodies Incorporated's anti-LRRK2 antibodies helping power discovery.
