Axoplasmic transport of monoamine oxidase after ischemia.

Rabbit spinal cords were subjected to 40 min of ischemia by abdominal aorta occlusion followed by 1 or 4 days of recirculation. Axoplasmic transport of mitochondria was investigated by monitoring the accumulation of monoamine oxidase activity (MAO, EC 1.4.3.4) at the proximal and distal ligatures placed on sciatic nerves. Within 1 day following ischemia… CONTINUE READING
