Acrylamide neuropathy: changes in the composition of proteins of fast axonal transport resemble those observed in regenerating axons.


Proteins conveyed by fast axonal transport along sensory and motor axons of rat sciatic nerve were labelled with L-[35S]methionine and characterized by one- and two-dimensional electrophoresis on polyacrylamide gels, followed by fluorography. Nerves from normal or bis-acrylamide-treated animals were compared with nerves from acrylamide-treated animals and… (More)
