I will study neuromuscular junctions
in wild-type and in drosophila mutants for hsp er-shaping proteins, To understand the roles of these proteins and the consequences of any altered distribution for local trafficking and organelle function.
Effect of exercise on physiological age-related change at mouse neuromuscular junctions
AW may be originated from upper or lower motor neuron lesions, spinal cord pathologies, neuromuscular junctions
and muscle diseases1 (Table-I).
The researchers carefully looked at the structures of the mice's neuromuscular junctions
, or NMJs - the connections between nerve cells and muscles - to better determine the effects of the drug and the compound.
Eye muscles are very specialized and differ greatly from other muscles in several areas, for instance in their neuromuscular junctions
formed between muscle fibers and nerve cells.
Transcriptional control of different acetylcholinesterase subunits in formation and maintenance of vertebrate neuromuscular junctions
The hope is, being able to form neuromuscular junctions
in vitro will help us understand how certain diseases function.
4) Acetylcholinesterase inhibition results in accumulation of acetylcholine and overstimulation of acetylcholine receptors in synapses of the autonomic nervous system, CNS and neuromuscular junctions
The book then expands to discuss intracellular connections and communication between cells, including neural synapses and neuromuscular junctions
, developmental plasticity, and learning, as well as how the longer-range traces of these electrical currents can be amplified to deliver a shock, used by predators to locate prey, and detected by medical technology to help diagnose a patient.
Treatment of patients with short-term facial paralysis (<1 year) focuses on preservation of native neuromuscular junctions
Aside from impairing movement in aging animals, a new functional set point in neuromuscular junctions
could put the synapse at risk for developing neurodegeneration - the hallmark of disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, Mahoney said.
The peak time of female ACL injury is in the first phase of the menstrual cycle, and oral contraceptives seem to be protective, probably because of the action on neuromuscular junctions
that hormones affect, Dr.
