Lamellar bodies are specialized cellular organelles used for storage of surfactant by alveolar type II cells of the lung. We utilized monoclonal antibody (MAb) 3C9, which recognizes an integral lamellar body-limiting membrane protein of 180 kDa, to follow lamellar body trafficking. (125)I-labeled MAb 3C9 bound to the surface of type II cells and was(More)
Motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are now recognized as multi-system disorders also involving various non-motor neuronal cell types. The precise extent and mechanistic basis of non-motor neuron damage in human ALS and ALS animal models remain however unclear. To address this, we here studied progressive motor neuronopathy(More)
Numerous neurotrophic factors promote the survival of developing motor neurons but their combinatorial actions remain poorly understood; to address this, we here screened 66 combinations of 12 neurotrophic factors on pure, highly viable, and standardized embryonic mouse motor neurons isolated by a unique FACS technique. We demonstrate potent, strictly(More)
