The postnatal development of the heterozygous Lurcher (Lc/+) mouse cerebellum is characterized by Purkinje cell death with a concomitant reduction in granule cell number. In order to evaluate possible relationships between these two events, this study investigates early morphological abnormalities of the Purkinje cells and possible defects in the formation(More)
Solid cerebellar grafts, taken from normal mouse embryos (gestational day 12-14), were transplanted into the cerebellum of adult Lurcher mice. The degree of Purkinje cell replacement was analysed one to three months after transplantation by means of immunocytochemistry (antibodies against calbindin, cGMP-dependent protein kinase and neurofilament proteins)(More)
The fate of embryonic Purkinje cells grafted over the brainstem surface of the adult Lurcher mouse was analyzed using anti-calbindin (CaBP) immunocytochemistry. Purkinje cells are able to migrate specifically into the molecular layer of the host dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCoN) and develop dendritic trees that are practically isoplanar, suggesting synaptic(More)
