In a distinct autosomal recessive variant of epidermolysis bullosa, EB-MD, life-long skin blistering is associated with late-onset muscular dystrophy of unknown etiology. Electron microscopy of these patients' skin suggests that tissue separation occurs intracellularly at the level of the hemidesmosomal inner plaque, which contains plectin, a high molecular(More)
S-100 protein, isolated from mammalian brain, has widely been used for immunohistochemical marker of the glia cells and the cells derived from the neural crest. In the present study, we made anti S-100 protein antibody and studied the immunoreactive distribution of S-100 protein in the cutaneous nervous system. Albino rabbits were immunized with S-100(More)
The presence of neuron-specific enolase (NSE) and S-100 protein, which are nerve specific proteins, was immunohistochemically investigated on the cutaneous nerves. NSE was found in the axons of the cutaneous nerve bundles and the terminal axons in the Meissner and Pacinian corpuscles of the normal human and macaque skin. S-100 protein was found in the(More)
Striated muscle cells coexisting with neuroglial tissue were found in the leptomeninges of a 3-day-old neonate. An immunohistochemical study demonstrated the presence of myoglobin in the striated muscle cells, glial fibrillary acidic protein, and S-100 protein in the heterotopic glia, S-100 protein in the Schwann cells of the heterotopic nerve bundles, and(More)
Novel heat-evolving pads were prepared and applied to the back of rabbits to measure the temperatures of the skin surface, subcutaneous tissue (about 3 mm in depth), muscle (about 8 mm in depth) under the applied area and the rectum. The application of the pad caused an increased in the skin surface temperature, which was accompanied with an increase in the(More)
