The paralysé mouse mutant: a new animal model of anterior horn motor neuron degeneration.

Abstract

The survival and morphometric characteristics of lumbar spinal motoneurons were examined in the paralysé mouse mutant. Affected (par/par) mice can be first recognized at approximately postnatal day (PN) 7 to 8 and are characterized by their smaller-than-normal body size, a progressive generalized muscle weakness, and lack of coordination. Mutant mice die by… (More)
