Product Detail: The causes and effects of neuronal degeneration are of major interest to a wide variety of neuroscientists. Paralleling this growing interest is an increasing number of methods applicable to the detection of neuronal degeneration. The fluorescent dye Fluoro-Jade B (FJB), like its more purified brother Fluoro-Jade C (FJC), is an anionic fluorescein derivative useful for the histological staining of neurons undergoing degeneration. Fluoro-Jade B differs from FJC in that it is a slightly less refined chemical formulation and thus it does not quite provide the same level of signal to noise or high resolution as FJC. Nonetheless FJB is still widely used and works very well as a marker of degenerating neurons and even glia (see Damjanac M et al., <a href="" target="_blank"> Brain Res. 2007;1128(1):40-9). FJB operates nearly identically in protocol to that of FJC, and Fluoro-Jade B is compatible with several other labeling procedures including immunofluorescent and fluorescent Nissl techniques. Fluoro-Jade B stains all degenerating neurons regardless of specific insult or mechanism of cell death. Fluoro-Jade B exhibits the greatest signal to background ratio, as well as the highest resolution. This translates to a stain of maximal contrast and affinity for degenerating neurons. This makes it ideal for localising not only degenerating nerve cell bodies but also distal dendrites, axons and terminals. The dye is highly resistant to fading and is compatible with virtually all histological processing and staining protocols. Note: This product is equivalent to discontinued product AG310 from Merck-Millipore.
Product Type: Staining Reagent
Format: Dry, Coffee brown to brick red powder; hygroscopic powder keep dessicated.
Species Reactivity: Human,Mouse,Other Mammals (Predicted),Rat
Applications: FC,ICC
Application Details: Following our detailed protocol, Fluoro-Jade C labels degenerating neurons which are visualised with blue light excitation, while DAPI (not included) counter stains cell nuclei, visualised with ultra-violet illumination. The Fluoro-Jade C dye can be used on all kinds of preserved tissues, including fresh-frozen, paraformaldehyde or formalin fixed, and formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues.

Kit Components: Materials Provided: 30 mg Fluoro-Jade B, dry powder Detailed protocol Equipment and Reagents Required: Distilled water ACS grade Ethanol (200 proof) for slide & solution preparation 1% sodium hydroxide in 80% ethanol (basic alcohol solution) 0.1% Acetic Acid solution (in water) 70% ethanol in distilled water 0.06% (KMnO4) potassium permanganate solution DAPI powder or 100X solution (working range is 0.5-5 µg/mL) Xylene liquid Staining dishes/Coplin jars Cover slips DPX mounting media or another permanent mounting medium. Non-polar media are preferred over aqueous mounting media such as glycerin/water to obtain high- contrast images (refer to Appendix B in the protocol for a comparative analysis). Traditional fluorescent mounting mediums are not recommended because of their high pH. Slide warmer Convection oven
Specificity: Degenerating neurons, and neuronal degeneration. There is no specific staining in normal healthy brain. Note: Some researchers under some conditions report blood vessel staining with Fluoro Jade. This may be because Fluoro Jade is an analogue of eosin (which stains blood cells). In general, good perfusion and preparation of the tissue should help prevent blood vessel staining but it may not be possible to eliminate it entirely. In our experience it is generally possible to distinguish neuronal from blood vessels staining by eye.
Purification: Thin layer chromatograpy using cellulose plates and a solvent system of n-propinol, water, and ammonium hydroxide (6:5:2) revealed the presence of two fluorescent isomers and two trace non-fluorescent bands. No amount of fluorescein or Fluoro-Jade was present.
Target: Degenerating neurons
