Apoptosis related antigen, LeY and nick-end labeling are positive in spinal motor neurons in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Abstract

Expression of LeY, a difucosylated type 2 chain determinant, has been previously identified as a characteristic of cells undergoing apoptosis. Immunohistochemistry using an antibody for LeY, as well as nick-end labeling for the detection of DNA breaks, was done on cervical spinal cord sections from ten patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and… (More)
