Alzheimer’s Disease Panel
Helping Your Research
Easily assess and monitor primary molecular characteristics of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) with standardized genes covering clinically-derived AD-associated modules. Now AD expression studies can be more reproducible and translationally relevant with an efficient workflow that potentially reduces the time to clinic. Reliably assay AD phenotypes and disease progression for mouse model development and human tissue screening.
- 770 genes specific for AD studies
- Comprehensive assessment of 30 AD-associated gene co-expression modules including 23 neurodegeneration pathways and processes
- Reproducible monitoring of AD progression with age
- Functional screening of potential AD therapeutics
- Customizable with up to 55 additional user-defined genes with Panel Plus option
- nCounter workflow is streamlined, user-friendly, and efficient with just 15 minutes total hands-on time
How It Works
The content included in the nCounter Mouse AD and Human AD panels represent a transcriptomic fingerprint of AD-related changes that can be directly compared to studies of mouse models of disease and back to human tissue. These panels allow for:
Pathway Based Module Analysis
Gene Set Analysis
Built-in compatibility for Panel Plus and Protein analysis

† Annotations for 23 fundamental pathways and processes were assigned across all genes in the Mouse AD and Human AD panel allowing for an additional view of important aspects of the onset and progression of neurodegenerative disease. Pathways and processes with >60% representative gene content per module are listed above.
‡ <60% representative pathway and process gene content per module.
* Genes selected based on human-mouse gene homology, maximal coverage of AMP-AD modules, top AGORA candidate gene status (agora.ampadportal.org), representation in AMP-AD module eigengenes, and expression in mouse brain.
Targeted Transcriptomic Analysis of C57BL/6 and BALB/c Mice During Progressive Chronic Toxoplasma gondii Infection Reveals Changes in Host and Parasite Gene Expression Relating to Neuropathology and Resolution.
Toxoplasma gondii is a resilient parasite that infects a multitude of warm-blooded hosts and results in a lifelong chronic infection requiring continuous responses by the host. Chronic infection is characterized by a balanced immune response and neuropathology that are driven by changes in gene expression.
A research parasite’s perspective on establishing a baseline to avoid errors in secondary analyses.
To enhance reproducibility in scientific research, more and more datasets are becoming publicly available so that researchers can perform secondary analyses to investigate questions the original scientists had not posited. This increases the return on investment for the NIH and other funding bodies.
Reduced erythrocytic CHCHD2 mRNA is associated with brain pathology of Parkinson’s disease.
Peripheral biomarkers indicative of brain pathology are critically needed for early detection of Parkinson’s disease (PD). In this study, using NanoString and digital PCR technologies, we began by screening for alterations in genes associated with PD or atypical Parkinsonism in erythrocytes of PD patients, in which PD-related changes have been reported, and which contain ~ 99% of blood α-synuclein.
