Receptors and various molecules in neurons are localized at precise locations to perform their respective functions, especially in synaptic sites. Among synaptic molecules, PDZ domain proteins play major roles in scaffolding and anchoring membrane proteins for efficient synaptic transmission. In the present study, we isolated CIP98, a novel protein (98 kDa)(More)
Swine hemagglutinating encephalomyelitis virus (HEV) has been shown to have a capability to propagate via neural circuits to the central nervous system after peripheral inoculation, resulting in acute deadly encephalomyelitis in natural host piglets as well as in experimental younger rodents. This study has systematically examined the assembly and(More)
Swine hemagglutinating encephalomyelitis virus (HEV) has been shown to have a capability to gain access to the cell bodies of sensory neurons after peripheral inoculation, resulting in ganglionic infection. It is not clearly understood how this virus is replicated within and released from the sensory neurons, and it remains to know how satellite cells(More)
Low temperature scanning electron microscopy of frozen-fractured specimens under cryo-protecting, non-dehydrating, and non-etching "wet" conditions, that is, direct cryo-SEM, was followed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with the same neural tissue specimens. In comparison to replica TEM, direct cryo-SEM can obtain images with a smooth gradation of(More)
Dendritic spinules of rat nigral neurons were visualized at electron microscopic level by acetylcholinesterase immunocytochemistry and serial sections of the nigral dendrites. The spinules (at least 150 nm in length and 10-20 nm in width) which protruded from the spine heads are found in extracellular space in the neuropil and particularly between nerve(More)
