Misexpression and cytosolic retention of peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP22) within Schwann cells (SCs) is associated with a genetically heterogeneous group of demyelinating peripheral neuropathies. PMP22 overproducer C22 and spontaneous mutant Trembler J (TrJ) mice display neuropathic phenotypes and affected nerves contain abnormally localized PMP22.(More)
Charcot--Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A) is a hereditary peripheral neuropathy characterized by progressive demyelination and distal muscle weakness. Abnormal expression of peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP22) has been linked to CMT1A and is modeled by Trembler J (TrJ) mice, which carry the same leucine to proline substitution in PMP22 as affected(More)
A large fraction of hereditary demyelinating neuropathies, classified as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A, is associated with misexpression of peripheral myelin protein 22. In this study, we characterized morphologic and biochemical changes that occur with diseaseprogression in neuromuscular tissue of Trembler-J mice, a spontaneous rodent model of(More)
