Immune complexes (IgG and C3) at the motor end-plate in myasthenia gravis: ultrastructural and light microscopic localization and electrophysiologic correlations.
Although there is strong evidence that myasthenia gravis (MG) is caused by an autoimmune reaction to the nicotinic postsynaptic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) protein, immune complexes have never beenExpand

Calcium-channel antibodies in the Lambert-Eaton syndrome and other paraneoplastic syndromes.
BACKGROUND Voltage-gated calcium channels in small-cell lung carcinomas may initiate autoimmunity in the paraneoplastic neuromuscular disorder Lambert-Eaton syndrome. The calcium-channel subtype thatExpand

Paucity and disorganization of presynaptic membrane active zones in the lambert‐eaton myasthenic syndrome
Presynaptic membrane active zones are related to synaptic vesicle exocytosis, and the large intramembrane particles in these zones may represent voltage‐sensitive calcium channels. We tested theExpand

Lower motor and primary sensory neuron diseases with peroneal muscular atrophy. II. Neurologic, genetic, and electrophysiologic findings in various neuronal degenerations.
THE companion paper 1 on this topic considered the inherited hypertrophic neuropathies in which peroneal muscle weakness and atrophy is prominent. In those disorders, a symmetric neurogenic weaknessExpand
