Cover Story (view full-size image): The figure shows the molecular basis and principles of TSPO-PET imaging. The 18 kDa Translocator Protein (TSPO) is an outer mitochondrial membrane protein which is well-known to be over-expressed by microglia during activation, thus being a sensitive hallmark of neuroinflammation. PET-based molecular imaging techniques targeting neuroinflammation take advantage of this and are unique tools for the in vivo visualization and quantification of TSPO over-expression.
