Ablation of the cellular prion protein PrP(C) leads to a chronic demyelinating polyneuropathy affecting Schwann cells. Neuron-restricted expression of PrP(C) prevents the disease, suggesting that PrP(C) acts in trans through an unidentified Schwann cell receptor. Here we show that the cAMP concentration in sciatic nerves from PrP(C)-deficient mice is(More)
INTRODUCTION In this study we sought to evaluate the reproducibility of sensory nerve conduction studies (NCS) using ultrasound-guided needle positioning (USNP). METHODS Orthodromic NCS of the sural nerve using needle electrodes with USNP as well as surface electrodes were conducted twice in 20 healthy volunteers. RESULTS The mean sensory nerve action(More)
