Decreased expression of LRP-1 transporters in cortical vessels of rats with chronic hydrocephalus. A. Immunostaining (bold arrows) of lipoprotein receptor-related protein-1 (LRP-1) in endothelial membranes of sectioned capillaries and arterioles in cerebral cortex of Sprague-Dawley rats (1-year control) B. Attenuated LRP-1 staining (negative vessels surrounded by asterisks) after 6 wk of hydrocephalus induced by kaolin injection into cisterna magna. Findings suggest reduced Aβ removal from cortex to blood in chronic hydrocephalus. Bar = 50 μm. Images reproduced with permission from NeuroReport [219].
