A sensitive assay for hyperploidy and cell death in the Drosophila brain using the Attune Acoustic Focusing Cytometer
Alzheimer’s disease (AD), characterized by a progressive loss of cognitive function, is the most prevalent neurodegenerative disorder of aging. Cell cycle re-entry and the resulting hyperploidy could be a proximal cause of age-related neurodegeneration, as well as a useful preclinical marker. Dissecting the precise biological significance of cell cycle re-entry in age-related neural decline will be critical to developing new approaches to combat AD.
This selection guide includes fluorophores used to study cell viability, cell cycle, cell proliferation, apoptosis, and phagocytosis, as well as fluorescent proteins commonly used in flow cytometry applications. For each dye or fluorescent protein, the excitation laser and common emission filters are shown. Use this poster to choose the best labeling reagents for your next flow cytometry experiment.

Molecular Probes School of Fluorescence
Learn the fundamentals of fluorescence imaging from Molecular Probes scientists. We’ve spent hundreds of hours in the lab and want to share our best tips, tricks, and protocols for capturing beautiful images, including:
It’s our aim to include everything that we wish we had known when we started working with fluorescent imaging reagents, and we asked our Technical Support team to review each section to make sure we haven’t overlooked anything. Even though we can’t be right there in the lab with you when you do your experiments, we hope you’ll benefit from the information we’ve collected.
