Detection of migrated allogeneic oligodendrocytes throughout the central nervous system of the galactocerebrosidase-deficient twitcher mouse.

Galactocerebrosidase-deficient oligodendrocytes of 'twitcher' (twi/twi) mice degenerate prematurely. Transplantation of normal bone marrow cells has been shown to alleviate symptoms and to prolong survival time. However, characteristic ataxia ('twitching') is not cured. In an attempt to improve further the condition of twitcher mice, allogeneic foetal liver… CONTINUE READING
