Description: SBS is a useful probe and tool molecule for detecting amyloid deposits in systemic amyloidosis in vitro and in vivo. SBS can be used for detecting amyloid fibrils in autopsy and biopsy samples from patients with localized amyloidosis, such as familial prion disease, and systemic amyloidosis, such as familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy, amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis, light chain (AL) amyloidosis, and dialysis-related amyloidosis. BSB showed reactions in all Congo red-pos. and immunoreactive regions of the samples examined in the study, and some amyloid fibrils in the tissues could be detected more precisely with BSB than with the other methods. In the mouse model of AA amyloidosis, injected BSB reacted with amyloid in all regions in the serial sections in which Congo red staining was pos. BSB showed a significant affinity for amyloid fibrils purified from familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy and dialysis-related amyloidosis samples and suppressed formation of transthyretin amyloid in vitro.
