in future, however, kinetics of cell viability as well as, for example, the in vitro growth of neurites should be determined.
17,11,13,34) TDP-43 pathology is visualized as abundant immunostained short neurites and intracellular inclusions in hippocampal formation, amygdala, and adjacent limbic cortices.
Neurites projecting from these cortical cells contribute to glomerular structures that are embedded within the lateral lobes (Spagnolia and Wilkens, 1983).
Interestingly, one of these antibodies also detect immunoreactive Egr3 in growing neurites of PC12 cells (data not shown).
To support this idea, we also detected some neurites (axons and dendrites) distant from amyloid plaques are reciprocally but continuously stained with their markers like tau and MAP2.
A few days later, the axons begin to regenerate, and the growing tips of the sprouting neurites expressed large quantities of LDLR.
New scaffolds may help to control the fate of stem cells, such as development towards axons and neurites formation.
Although they are not considered adult neurons, they undergo changes in phenotype exhibited by normal neurons when treated with nerve growth factor (NGF), including outgrowth and extension of neurites and maintenance of the structural basis of neural communication.
2013) evaluated the morphological properties of the soma and neurites using a computerized imaging system.
Biopsies from 21 out of the 29 patients with PD (72%) showed Lewy neurites in their submucosal plexus, whereas no Lewy pathology was observed in any of the controls [89].
