Aluminum is a neurotoxin and in susceptible species induces a neurofibrillary pathology characterized by argentophilic masses in neuronal perikarya and in axonal spheroids. These inclusions are known to contain neurofilament proteins. Using immunocytochemistry and immunoblotting, we demonstrate that tau is a component of these aluminum-induced(More)
In this study, the effects of axotomy on heat shock protein 70 (hsp70) protein levels were analyzed by immunoblotting with a hsp70 antibody that recognized constitutive and inducible forms of the protein. The right facial nerve of postnatal day 4 (neonate) or 100 (adult) hamsters was transected at its exit from the stylomastoid foramen, with the left nerve(More)
