BrainNet Europe is a "Network of Excellence" funded by the European Commission in the 6th Framework Program "Life Science" (LSHM-CT-2004-503039). It consists of 19 established brain banks across Europe and is coordinated by the Centre for Neuropathology and Prion Research Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany.
|WP23 - Laser Capture Microdissection|
The applicability of high quality human post mortem human tissue to new sampling techniques such as laser capture microdissection (LCM), were investigated on the basis of results of WP01, WP17, WP18, WP19 and WP20. The limitations and possibilities of this innovative technique using human post mortem brain tissue are being determined, both for RNA and protein isolation/detection. This sampling technique may be given even more specific when it is coupled with histochemical or immunohistochemical stainings. The specific objectives are:
