Immune Privilege in the Brainhttp://www.biolegend.com/newsdetail/3014/The blood-brain barrier is a selectively permeable membrane that can keep out pathogens, immune cells, and even antibodies. This creates a very specialized immune environment in the central nervous system. This blog discusses the blood-brain barrier, which can be compromised under certain conditions, leading to immune cell infiltration and chronic neuroinflammation.

Microglia: The Immune Cells of the Brainhttp://www.biolegend.com/newsdetail/2971/Microglia are the primary immune cells in the central nervous system. They are highly similar to peripheral macrophages and respond to pathogens and injury by becoming activated. As part of their response, they secrete cytokines and chemokines, which help in the resolution of the inflammatory response. But these cells are also known for their harmful roles in neurodegenerative diseases and brain injuries, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

Annexin V Reagents and Moxi Flowhttps://www.biolegend.com/NewsLegend/061814/index.htmWhen cells are distressed, they can undergo apoptosis. One of the first early warning signs of apoptosis is the expression of phosphatidylserine (PS) on the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane. By taking advantage of Annexin V's high propensity for PS binding, you can get an early look at these dying cells. ORFLO's Moxi Flow machine is capable of detecting PE (or other spectrally equivalent fluors) conjugated antibodies at a fraction of the cost of larger, more expensive cytometer options. We also examine how important blood donations are and how artificial blood could soon help us all out.

However, recent studies have reported that many published results cannot be independently reproduced. To examine this issue, the Cancer Biology Reproducibility Project is independently replicating 50 recent high impact cancer biology studies using the Science Exchange network of expert scientific labs. With a large team of researchers, the initiative will replicate directly the key result from a defined sample of studies. Across studies, the following will be evaluated: the feasibility of conducting direct replications, success in obtaining materials and procedures in order to conduct a direct replication, the rate of replication success, and covariates of replication success. The findings will be submitted and published in the open access journal PLoS ONE.
