The effect of nerve crush and botulinum toxin on lead uptake in motor axons


After lead (Pb) is injected into striated muscle it binds to the sarcolemma of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) and crosses into the terminal axons of motor neurons. To find out whether this intra-axonal accumulation of Pb is due to active transport or to diffusion down a concentration gradient, Pb uptake into motor axons of mice was studied at active and… (More)
