The sternocostalis muscle of the rat provides an ideal preparation for examination of neuromuscular junctions in a whole mount. It contains all three morphological end plate types (A, B and C), and its segmental innervation allows ease of experiment, such as partial denervation. The ratio of end plate types remains constant in all individuals of the same(More)
The sternocostalis muscle of the rat was examined at one to five days after partial denervation and levels of terminal sprouting were assessed. The removal of one intercostal nerve caused localised degeneration which did not extend more than a few muscle fibres deep into the field of distribution of the adjacent nerve. Terminal sprouting was clearly seen at(More)

Injection of a sublethal dose of botulinum toxin (type D) into the cutaneous pectoris muscle of the frog caused paralysis for about three months, but in contrast to previous studies in the mammal, did not appear to cause axonal sprouting from motor nerve terminals. In frogs in which the cutaneous pectoris had been denervated by crushing its nerve,(More)
