Left: Characteristic staining of p-Tau (green) in a case of CTE. Claudin-5 (red) protein levels are discontinuous and not present in areas of p-Tau accumulation around blood vessels. This is an indication of a dysfunctional blood brain barrier. Right: Areas of p-Tau (green) staining around blood vessels have absent or discontinuous claudin-5 (red) staining indicating a compromised blood brain barrier.
