Histopathologic and autoradiographic studies were performed on monkeys of the genera Saimiri and Macaca after acute and chronic oral exposure to several dosage regimens of methylmercuric chloride (MeHg). Neuropathologic changes were primarily cortical, although subcortical lesions also were observed. Autoradiographic localization of 203-Hg was greatest within glial cells (particularly Nissl-pump astrocytes, subependymal glia and Bergmann's glia) and mast cells. High levels of label within… CONTINUE READING
