Lewy bodies are ubiquitinated. A light and electron microscopic immunocytochemical study.

The nature of Lewy bodies (LBs) in the brain stem and cerebral cortex in five cases of diffuse Lewy body disease and one case of Parkinson's disease with dementia were investigated immunocytochemically with various antibodies to cytoskeletal proteins, paired helical filaments (PHF) and ubiquitin. Antibodies to 200-kDa component of neurofilament, tau and PHF… CONTINUE READING
