Heat shock protein expression in corpora amylacea in the central nervous system: clues to their origin.


Small bodies expressing epitopes of the 72 kD heat shock protein (HSP) have been identified in the brain and spinal cord in normal and neurologically abnormal individuals. These bodies resemble the 'pre-corpora amylacea' (pre-CA), thought to be the primary structure in the development of the mature body. Corpora amylacea are laminated hyaline bodies… (More)
