Interactions between astrocytes and oligodendroglia in human and experimental Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and scrapie.


We report here a rare interaction between reactive astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, first detected in a brain biopsy of human Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) and then in experimental CJD in mice and in two models (263K and 22CH) of scrapie in hamsters. In human CJD brain biopsy, low-power electron microscopy revealed numerous examples of astrocytes and… (More)
