Formation of ectopic neuromuscular junctions in adult rats.


The formation of ectopic neuromuscular junctions between a transplanted foreign nerve (the superficial fibular nerve) and the denervated soleus muscle was examined in adult rats. Formation of new junctions was induced by denervating the soleus muscle by cutting the tibial nerve. Junctional transmission began 3 days after denervation when denervation was… (More)
