The myelinated fibers in the corticospinal tracts, ventral spinal roots, and the neurons in the ventral spinal horns were quantitatively examined in 8 autopsied cases of multiple system atrophy associated with autonomic failure. In these structures consisting of the somatic motor efferents, the main pathological feature was the size dependent-involvement of(More)
Laminin A, B1, and B2 chain mRNA levels in degenerating and regenerating mouse sciatic nerves were examined using northern blot analysis. In normal intact nerves, B1 and B2 mRNA steady-state levels were high, but when the nerves were crushed, the steady-state levels of B1 and B2 mRNA per milligram wet tissue weight of the distal segments of the nerves(More)
Using monoclonal antibody (Ta-51) that specifically binds phosphorylated high molecular weight neurofilament (pNFH) proteins, we investigated the occurrence of perikaryal pNFH in the spinal ventral horn motoneurons, intermediolateral column (ILC) neurons, sympathetic ganglion neurons and dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons obtained from patients with(More)
