Abstract: Astrocytes are the most numerous cell population of glia in the central nervous system. This study mainly focused on the astrocytic expression of aldehyde dehydrogenase family 1 member L1 (ALDH1L1) under physiological and pathological conditions. Brain sections from 3 control humans, 3 multiple sclerosis patients, 5 control mice, and 15 mice intoxicated with cuprizone were applied. Immunohistochemical and immunofluorescent staining was performed to analyze the expression of ALDH1L1 by astrocytes. The results indicated a dynamic regulation of ALDH1L1 in both the healthy and diseased CNS.
