We examined the localization of the normal cellular isoform of prion protein (PrPc) in mammalian skeletal muscle. Using two anti-PrP antibodies, the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) was preferentially stained after immunohistofluorescence. The mouse, hamster, and human NMJ displayed a fluorescent signal specific for PrPc. Postembedding immunoelectron microscopy(More)
To gain a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in the formation of cytoplasmic bodies (CBs), the immunohistochemical and biochemical features of muscle samples with nonspecific CBs were compared to those previously described by our group in cytoplasmic body myopathy (CBM), a congenital disease in which specific CBs are found. Accordingly, we(More)
