Neuromuscular junctions are pathological but not

This abstract was published in PubMed ahead of the printed version of the study. No additional information is available at this time, but it sounds interesting.

Neuromuscular junctions are pathological but not denervated in two mouse models of spinal bulbar muscular atrophy

Poort JE1, Rheuben MB1, Marc Breedlove S1, Jordan CL2.


Spinal bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA) is a progressive, late onset neuromuscular disease causing motor dysfunction in men. While the morphology of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) is typically affected in neuromuscular disease, whether the NMJs in SBMA are similarly affected by disease is not known.”
