Slow orthograde axonal transport of radiolabelled protein in sciatic motoneurones of rats with short-term experimental diabetes: effects of treatment with an aldose reductase inhibitor or myo-inositol.

This study examined the effect of streptozotocin diabetes of 5 weeks duration on the profile of slow orthogradely transported radiolabelled protein in rat sciatic motoneurones. The diabetic rats showed a retardation of the tail of the slow-component profile. This selective retardation was unaffected by treatment with an aldose reductase inhibitor, although… CONTINUE READING
