Astrocytes in transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (prion diseases).

Abstract

Astrocytosis is one of the hallmarks of neuropathology of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) or prion diseases. In this review, we summarize data on astrocytic reaction, including naturally occurring or experimentally induced TSEs. A particular form of astrocytic reaction is known as gliocytosis and it is typical for experimental scrapie in… (More)
