Fig 2: LEA protein reduces protein aggregation in vivo. Confocal microscopy of human cells after introduction of HD polyQ ("EGFP-HDQ74") expression construct, with (induced) or without (uninduced) expression of LEA protein. Nematode LEA protein AavLEA1 is immunostained red, polyQ protein is green and nuclei are stained blue with DAPI. Indicative polyQ aggregates are shown by arrowheads; fewer aggregates are observed in the presence of LEA protein. See Chakrabortee et al. (2007) for more detail.
