It has previously been shown that 2,5-hexanedione (2,5-HD) and its 3,4-dimethyl derivative (3,4-DMHD) induce neurofilamentous accumulations at prenodal sites in distal and proximal, respectively, regions of peripheral axons. For 2,5-HD, neurofilament (NF) transport is accelerated and this is thought to be directly related to the appearance of the axonal(More)
Dysplastic gangliocytoma of the cerebellum is reported in a newborn. It is characterized by large ganglion cells in the molecular layer and premature attenuation of the external granule-cell layer. The internal granule-cell layer appears rarefied but otherwise normally organized. It appears that in this disease the migrating granule cells mature too early(More)
Central nervous system abnormalities were found in seven infants with thanatophoric dysplasia, including two with cloverleaf skull deformity. These abnormalities were megalencephaly, dysplastic temporal cortex, lateral displacement of basal ganglia, dysplasia of several nuclei, and fiber tract deformities. They are characteristic and distinct components of(More)
The chronic exposure to gamma-diketones results in the formation of giant neurofilament (NF)-containing axonal enlargements, followed by axonal degeneration in peripheral axons. Based on the specific ability of gamma-diketones to react with primary amino groups to form pyrroles, and the observation of such reaction with NF protein in vitro and with other(More)
