Absence of histochemical immunoreactivity to calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) in spinal cord motoneurons from (+)-tubocurarine-treated chick embryos.

Abstract

A physiological neuronal death that implicates about 50% of the motoneuron population occurs in the chick embryo between the 6th (E6) and 9th (E9) day of incubation. This natural death can be prevented by administration of neuromuscular blocking agents (e.g. (+)-tubocurarine ((+)-Tc)). In this study, calcitonin gene-related peptide-like immunoreactivity… (More)
