The axonal transport system, which supplies essential proteins and other cellular components to the distal portions of peripheral nerve axons, has been postulated to be the primary site of vulnerability inducing the peripheral neuropathies associated with neurotoxin exposure. Axonal transport was examined in normal rat dorsal root ganglia-sciatic nerve preparations incubated 28 hours in vitro in the presence of 79, 198 or 395 mg% ethanol. Exposure of the nerves to 395 mg% ethanol significantly… CONTINUE READING
