The prevalence of neurodegenerative diseases is increasing worldwide. Cerebrovascular disorders and/or conditions known to affect brain vasculature, such as diabetes, are well-known risk factors for neurodegenerative diseases. Thus, the evaluation of the brain vasculature is of great importance to better understand the mechanisms underlying brain damage. We established a protocol for the isolation of brain vessels from rodents. This is a simple, non-enzymatic isolation protocol that allows us to perform comparative studies in different animal models of disease, helping understand the impact of several pathological conditions on brain vasculature and how those alterations predispose to neurodegenerative conditions.

The brain is highly dependent on a constant supply of oxygen and nutrients that arrive through a vast network of blood vessels. The blood-brain barrier (BBB), mainly composed of microvascular endothelial cells that line cerebral microvessels along with periendothelial structures, which include pericytes, astrocytes and a basement membrane (Saraiva et al., 2016; Librizzi et al., 2017), guarantees the control of an homeostatic environment, necessary to maintain the health of brain cells. Thus, the study of how certain pathologies that can interfere with the integrity of cerebrovasculature is of great importance. Indeed, strong evidence from clinical, imaging, epidemiological and neuropathological studies confirmed over the past two decades that the presence of cerebrovascular disease has a pivotal role in Alzheimer disease (AD) and other dementias associated with aging (Chui et al., 2006; Schneider et al., 2007; Gorelick et al., 2011; Wharton et al., 2011; Yarchoan et al., 2012; Bennett et al., 2013; DeCarli, 2013; Toledo et al., 2013; Yates et al., 2014). Besides the low number of papers dedicated to the study of isolated brain vessels, the isolation protocols used in those studies present some inconsistencies rendering difficult the comparison and interpretation of the published observations. With this protocol, we intend to offer a standardized procedure to help researchers working in this field. This protocol was adapted from a previous protocol described by McNeill et al. (1999) and used in our laboratory to isolate total (arterial and venous) brain vessels from rodents (Figures 1 and 4) (Carvalho et al., 2010; Carvalho et al., 2013; Plácido et al., 2017).

Figure 1. Evaluation of the activity of the mitochondrial enzymatic complexes of mice brain vessels. Mitochondrial complexes I-III (A), II-III (B) and IV (C) were determined in vessels isolated from the brains of 11-month-old male wild type (WT; C57BL6/129S), type 2 diabetes-like mice (WT mice exposed to 20% sucrose solution during 7 months) and triple transgenic mice for Alzheimer disease (3xTg-AD, B6;129-Psen1 Tg(APPSwe,tauP301L)1Lfa/Mmjax). A significant decrease in the activity of mitochondrial complexes I-III was observed in brain vessels isolated from 3xTg-AD and type 2 diabetes-like mice. Also, a significant decrease in the activity of complex IV was observed in brain vessels isolated from 3xTg-AD mice. Data shown represent mean ± SEM from 6-8 pools of n = 3. Statistical significance: *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01 when compared with WT mice. Statistical significance was determined using the paired Student’s t-test and Kruskal-Wallis test for multiple comparisons, followed by the posthoc Dunn test (GraphPad Prism 5). These graphs have been previously published in Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease (DOI: 10.3233/JAD-130005) with permission from IOS Press.

  2. Perform a midline incision, posterior to anterior, along the scalp to reveal the skull (Video 1).

  3. Cut the cranium carefully from the neck to the nose through the lateral cranial sutures. Two additional cuts can be performed, in the occipital hole to the ears direction, to facilitate the access to the brain (Figure 2A, Video 1).

    Figure 2. Illustrative images of brain dissection and homogenization. Cut the cranium carefully from the neck to the nose through the lateral cranial sutures (A). Remove the intact brain from the cranial box using a small spatula (B). Then, remove the cerebellum, olfactory bulbs and white matter using fine dissection forceps and keep the brain cortices (C). Finally, homogenize brain tissue, at 4 °C, in 10 ml PBS using a Potter-Elvehjem with PTFE pestle and glass tube, at 800 rpm/min (D).

  4. Remove the intact brain from the cranial box using a small spatula (Figure 2B, Video 1).

  12. Layer the PBS resuspended pellet over 20 ml 16% dextran (Video 2; see Recipes).
    Note: This step must be gently done to avoid mixing the two layers (Figure 3).

    Video 2. Brain vessels isolation

  13. Centrifuge at 4,500 x g for 20 min, at 4 °C (Figure 2).
  14. Collect the supernatant and the middle layer, and keep the pellet on ice (Figure 3).
  15. Repeat step 14.
  16. Discard the supernatant and resuspend the two resulting pellets in 100 μl PBS.
    Note: Resuspend the first pellet in 100 μl PBS and use the suspension to resuspend the second pellet. The vessels can be visualized at optic microscope (Figure 4) using the DiffQuick staining as described by Mota and Ramalho-Santos (2006).
  17. Store the vessels at -80 °C until use (used until 2 years upon isolation; Figure 3).

  1. In order to minimize the day-to-day variability that can bias the results, in studies using animal models of disease, researchers must always isolate vessels from control and diseased animal models.
  2. Minimum number of animals required for the isolation of brain vessels: 1 rat brain or 3 mice brains. It is possible to use only 1 mice brain. However, the pellet size will be very small, which will difficult its visualization with the naked eye.


  1. Phosphate buffer (0.01 M)
    8.5 g/L NaCl
    1.42 g/L Na2HPO4
    pH = 7.4
  2. Dextran (16%)
    160 g/L Dextran from Leuconostoc mesenteroides


  1. Distilled water type 1 must be used in the preparation of the solutions.
  2. For short periods of time solutions must be conserved at 4 °C (e.g., one week); for longer periods solutions must be conserved at -20 °C (except Dextran solution).
  3. Dextran solution must not be frozen; it is stable for one week at 4 °C.

全世界神经退行性疾病的发病率正在增加。 已知会影响脑血管系统的脑血管疾病和/或病症,如糖尿病,是神经变性疾病的众所周知的危险因素。 因此,脑血管系统的评估对于更好地了解脑损伤的机制是非常重要的。 我们建立了从啮齿动物分离脑血管的方案。 这是一个简单的非酶分离方案,允许我们在不同的疾病动物模型中进行比较研究,帮助了解几种病理状况对脑血管系统的影响以及这些改变如何易于发生神经退行性疾病。
【背景】大脑高度依赖于通过庞大的血管网络到达的氧气和营养物质的不断供应。主要由微血管内皮细胞组成的血脑屏障(BBB),其包括脑内微血管以及周围结构,包括周细胞,星形胶质细胞和基底膜(Saraiva等,2016; Librizzi等,2017),保证控制稳态环境,保持脑细胞的健康。因此,研究如何干扰脑血管系统完整性的某些病理学是非常重要的。事实上,临床,成像,流行病学和神经病理学研究的有力证据证实了过去二十年来,脑血管疾病的存在在阿尔茨海默病(AD)和其他与衰老有关的痴呆中具有关键作用(Chui et al。,2006; Schneider et al。,2007; Gorelick et al。,2011; Wharton et al。,2011; Yarchoan et al。,2012; Bennett et al。,2013; DeCarli,2013; Toledo et al。,2013; Yates et al。 2014)。除了专门研究孤立的脑血管的文章数量少之外,这些研究中使用的隔离方案存在一些不一致,使得对发表的观察结果的比较和解释变得困难。有了这个协议,我们打算提供一个标准化的程序来帮助在这个领域工作的研究人员。该协议根据McNeill等人描述的先前协议进行了改进。 (1999),并用于我们的实验室以分离来自啮齿动物的总(动脉和静脉)脑血管(图1和图4)(Carvalho等人,2010; Carvalho等人,2013;Plácido等,2017)。
