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 to 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 CodeSet Plus option
  • nCounter workflow is streamlined, user-friendly, and efficient, with just 15 minutes of total hands-on time
  • Human and mouse panels available as Curated Gene Lists: application and pathway-specific content pre-designed and developed by NanoString available for custom ordering
Alzheimers Disease

How It Works

The content included in the nCounter 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:

Functional Annotations

† 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 (, representation in AMP-AD module eigengenes, and expression in mouse brain.

Single-cell heterogeneity of EGFR and CDK4 co-amplification is linked to immune infiltration in glioblastoma

Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most aggressive brain tumor, with a median survival of ∼15 months. Targeted approaches have not been successful in this tumor type due to the large extent of intratumor heterogeneity.

Accumulation of pTau231 at the Postsynaptic Density in Early Alzheimer’s Disease

Background:: Phosphorylated cytoplasmic tau inclusions correlate with and precede cognitive deficits in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, pathological tau accumulation and relationships to synaptic changes remain unclear.

Macrophage infiltration promotes regrowth in MYCN-amplified neuroblastoma after chemotherapy

Despite aggressive treatment, the 5-year event-free survival rate for children with high-risk neuroblastoma is <50%. While most high-risk neuroblastoma patients initially respond to treatment, often with complete clinical remission, many eventually relapse with therapy-resistant tumors.
