An 11-week-old and a 6-month-old kitten with feline GM2 gangliosidosis and deficiency in both A and B isoenzymes of beta-D-N-acetyl hexosaminidase were studied by light transmission (TEM), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Neurons throughout the nervous system contained cytoplasmic, membrane-bound inclusions which were PAS-positive at the fine structure level these inclusions were composed of membranous arrays in whorls, vesicles, or multilaminated stacks. Fusion of the bounding membranes… CONTINUE READING
