Neurite (axon and dendrite) degeneration requires self-destructive programs independent of cell death programs to segregate neurite degeneration from cell soma demise. We have here addressed the question of whether neuritic degeneration is delayed or occurs normally under conditions in which sympathetic neurons acquire resistance to somal apoptosis upon(More)
Most cellular zinc is tightly associated with metalloproteins and other Zn2+-dependent proteins, which along with cellular Zn2+ compartments may coordinately regulate cytoplasmic free Zn2+ levels in the picomolar range. Moreover, Zn2+-containing endosomes or protein complexes appear to move along axons or dendrites, suggesting a dynamic mechanism for(More)
