Tremor is a prominent phenotype of the twitcher mouse, an authentic genetic model of Globoid-Cell Leukodystrophy (GLD, Krabbe's disease). In the current study, the tremor was quantified using a force-plate actometer designed to accommodate low-weight mice. The actometer records the force oscillations caused by a mouse's movements, and the rhythmic structure(More)
Recent experimental studies have shown that intrasynovial donor tendons have the capacity to heal with minimal alteration in the gliding surface when grafted to an intrasynovial location. In order to evaluate the flexor digitorum longus of the foot as a potential matched donor tendon for use in flexor tendon grafting, we dissected 15 feet (75 toes) and 10(More)
of the Dissertation Globoid-cell leukodystrophy (GLD, Krabbe's disease) is an autosomal recessive disease caused by a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme galactosylceramidase (GALC). It results in altered catabolism of the myelin lipid Galactosylceramide. The disease predominantly affects the white matter of the CNS and the myelin sheath of the peripheral(More)
AIMS To analyze and compare the angular and linear hard tissue cephalometric measurements using hand-tracing and computerized tracings with Nemoceph and Dolphin software systems. SUBJECTS AND METHODS A total of 30 cephalograms were randomly chosen for study with the following criteria, cephalograms of patients with good contrast, no distortion, and(More)
Globoid-cell Leukodystrophy (GLD; Krabbe's disease) is a rapidly progressing inherited demyelinating disease caused by a deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme Galactosylceramidase (GALC). Deficiency of GALC leads to altered catabolism of galactosylceramide and the cytotoxic lipid, galactosylsphingosine (psychosine). This leads to a rapidly progressive fatal(More)
