Immunohistochemistry localization of tau and Hirano bodies in human brains. Immunohistochemistry was performed on paraffin embedded human brain sections using Tau5 or pTau-199/202 antibodies following an eosin counterstain to visualize Hirano bodies (arrows). Tau5 antibodies colocalized with Hirano bodies in both Alzheimer diseased and control brains while pTau-199/202 colocalized with Hirano bodies only in Alzheimer diseased brains. Scale bar = 50 μm
