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 at the proximal and distal ligatures placed on sciatic nerves. Within 1 day following ischemia… CONTINUE READING
