Anterior Horn Cells: MOTOR NEURONS in the anterior (ventral) horn of the SPINAL CORD which project to SKELETAL MUSCLES.Spinal Muscular Atrophies of Childhood: A group of recessively inherited diseases that feature progressive muscular atrophy and hypotonia. They are classified as type I (Werdnig-Hoffman disease), type II (intermediate form), and type III (Kugelberg-Welander disease). Type I is fatal in infancy, type II has a late infantile onset and is associated with survival into the second or third decade. Type III has its onset in childhood, and is slowly progressive. (J Med Genet 1996 Apr:33(4):281-3)Muscular Atrophy, Spinal: A group of disorders marked by progressive degeneration of motor neurons in the spinal cord resulting in weakness and muscular atrophy, usually without evidence of injury to the corticospinal tracts. Diseases in this category include Werdnig-Hoffmann disease and later onset SPINAL MUSCULAR ATROPHIES OF CHILDHOOD, most of which are hereditary. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1089)Neuronal Apoptosis-Inhibitory Protein: An inhibitor of apoptosis protein that was initially identified during analysis of CHROMOSOME DELETIONS associated with SPINAL MUSCULAR ATROPHY. Naip contains a nucleotide binding oligomerization domain and a carboxy-terminal LEUCINE rich repeat.SMN Complex Proteins: A complex of proteins that assemble the SNRNP CORE PROTEINS into a core structure that surrounds a highly conserved RNA sequence found in SMALL NUCLEAR RNA. They are found localized in the GEMINI OF COILED BODIES and in the CYTOPLASM. The SMN complex is named after the Survival of Motor Neuron Complex Protein 1, which is a critical component of the complex.Spinal Cord: A cylindrical column of tissue that lies within the vertebral canal. It is composed of WHITE MATTER and GRAY MATTER.Survival of Motor Neuron 1 Protein: A SMN complex protein that is essential for the function of the SMN protein complex. In humans the protein is encoded by a single gene found near the inversion telomere of a large inverted region of CHROMOSOME 5. Mutations in the gene coding for survival of motor neuron 1 protein may result in SPINAL MUSCULAR ATROPHIES OF CHILDHOOD.Spinal Cord Diseases: Pathologic conditions which feature SPINAL CORD damage or dysfunction, including disorders involving the meninges and perimeningeal spaces surrounding the spinal cord. Traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, infections, and inflammatory/autoimmune processes may affect the spinal cord.Muscular Atrophy: Derangement in size and number of muscle fibers occurring with aging, reduction in blood supply, or following immobilization, prolonged weightlessness, malnutrition, and particularly in denervation.Motor Neurons: Neurons which activate MUSCLE CELLS.Electromyography: Recording of the changes in electric potential of muscle by means of surface or needle electrodes.HornsPosterior Horn Cells: Neurons in the SPINAL CORD DORSAL HORN whose cell bodies and processes are confined entirely to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. They receive collateral or direct terminations of dorsal root fibers. They send their axons either directly to ANTERIOR HORN CELLS or to the WHITE MATTER ascending and descending longitudinal fibers.Menisci, Tibial: The interarticular fibrocartilages of the superior surface of the tibia.Arthrogryposis: Persistent flexure or contracture of a joint.Paralysis: A general term most often used to describe severe or complete loss of muscle strength due to motor system disease from the level of the cerebral cortex to the muscle fiber. This term may also occasionally refer to a loss of sensory function. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p45)Neuromuscular Diseases: A general term encompassing lower MOTOR NEURON DISEASE; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; and certain MUSCULAR DISEASES. Manifestations include MUSCLE WEAKNESS; FASCICULATION; muscle ATROPHY; SPASM; MYOKYMIA; MUSCLE HYPERTONIA, myalgias, and MUSCLE HYPOTONIA.Motor Neuron Disease: Diseases characterized by a selective degeneration of the motor neurons of the spinal cord, brainstem, or motor cortex. Clinical subtypes are distinguished by the major site of degeneration. In AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS there is involvement of upper, lower, and brainstem motor neurons. In progressive muscular atrophy and related syndromes (see MUSCULAR ATROPHY, SPINAL) the motor neurons in the spinal cord are primarily affected. With progressive bulbar palsy (BULBAR PALSY, PROGRESSIVE), the initial degeneration occurs in the brainstem. In primary lateral sclerosis, the cortical neurons are affected in isolation. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1089)Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A degenerative disorder affecting upper MOTOR NEURONS in the brain and lower motor neurons in the brain stem and SPINAL CORD. Disease onset is usually after the age of 50 and the process is usually fatal within 3 to 6 years. Clinical manifestations include progressive weakness, atrophy, FASCICULATION, hyperreflexia, DYSARTHRIA, dysphagia, and eventual paralysis of respiratory function. Pathologic features include the replacement of motor neurons with fibrous ASTROCYTES and atrophy of anterior SPINAL NERVE ROOTS and corticospinal tracts. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1089-94)Spinal Nerve Roots: Paired bundles of NERVE FIBERS entering and leaving the SPINAL CORD at each segment. The dorsal and ventral nerve roots join to form the mixed segmental spinal nerves. The dorsal roots are generally afferent, formed by the central projections of the spinal (dorsal root) ganglia sensory cells, and the ventral roots are efferent, comprising the axons of spinal motor and PREGANGLIONIC AUTONOMIC FIBERS.Neural Conduction: The propagation of the NERVE IMPULSE along the nerve away from the site of an excitation stimulus.

Neuromyotonia: an unusual presentation of intrathoracic malignancy. (1/130)

A 48 year old woman is described who presented with increasing muscular rigidity and who was found to have a mediastinal tumour. Electrophysiological studies revealed that the muscular stiffness resulted from very high frequency motor unit activity which outlasted voluntary effort, and which was abolished by nerve block. The abnormal activity may have arisen at the anterior horn cell level. Marked improvement followed the administration of diphenylhydantoin.  (+info)

Rapid onset transverse myelitis in adolescence: implications for pathogenesis and prognosis. (2/130)

Five adolescents with transverse myelitis were reviewed. All presented with a rapid onset paralysis of the lower limbs and impairment of bladder control. The maximum disability developed between 10 minutes and six hours. There was no history of trauma, asthma, or prodromal illness. Investigations failed to demonstrate a vascular cause. Extensive spinal cord abnormalities were observed on magnetic resonance imaging. Electrophysiological investigations, performed in four cases, were all consistent with anterior horn cell damage. In all five adolescents there was poor recovery. The underlying pathogenesis of this rapid onset condition remains a subject of debate. Similarities with both transverse myelitis and fibrocartilaginous emboli are evident, widening the spectrum of conditions within the transverse myelitis umbrella. These observations suggest that in rapid onset "transverse myelitis" the combination of extensive hyperintensity on spinal cord neuroimaging with electrophysiological evidence of anterior horn cell involvement might have adverse prognostic significance.  (+info)

Age-related atrophy of motor axons in mice deficient in the mid-sized neurofilament subunit. (3/130)

Neurofilaments are central determinants of the diameter of myelinated axons. It is less clear whether neurofilaments serve other functional roles such as maintaining the structural integrity of axons over time. Here we show that an age-dependent axonal atrophy develops in the lumbar ventral roots of mice with a null mutation in the mid-sized neurofilament subunit (NF-M) but not in animals with a null mutation in the heavy neurofilament subunit (NF-H). Mice with null mutations in both genes develop atrophy in ventral and dorsal roots as well as a hind limb paralysis with aging. The atrophic process is not accompanied by significant axonal loss or anterior horn cell pathology. In the NF-M-null mutant atrophic ventral root, axons show an age-related depletion of neurofilaments and an increased ratio of microtubules/neurofilaments. By contrast, the preserved dorsal root axons of NF-M-null mutant animals do not show a similar depletion of neurofilaments. Thus, the lack of an NF-M subunit renders some axons selectively vulnerable to an age-dependent atrophic process. These studies argue that neurofilaments are necessary for the structural maintenance of some populations of axons during aging and that the NF-M subunit is especially critical.  (+info)

Norepinephrine facilitates inhibitory transmission in substantia gelatinosa of adult rat spinal cord (part 2): effects on somatodendritic sites of GABAergic neurons. (4/130)

BACKGROUND: It has been reported previously that norepinephrine, when applied to the spinal cord dorsal horn, excites a subpopulation of dorsal horn neurons, presumably inhibitory interneurons. In the current study, the authors tested whether norepinephrine could activate inhibitory interneurons, specifically those that are "GABAergic." METHODS: A transverse slice was obtained from a segment of the lumbar spinal cord isolated from adult male Sprague-Dawley rats. Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were made from substantia gelatinosa neurons using the blind patch-clamp technique. The effects of norepinephrine on spontaneous GABAergic inhibitory postsynaptic currents were studied. RESULTS: In the majority of substantia gelatinosa neurons tested, norepinephrine (10-60 microM) significantly increased both the frequency and the amplitude of GABAergic inhibitory postsynaptic currents. These increases were blocked by tetrodotoxin (1 microM). The effects of norepinephrine were mimicked by the alpha1-receptor agonist phenylephrine (10-80 microM) and inhibited by the alpha1-receptor-antagonist WB-4101 (0.5 microM). Primary-afferent-evoked polysynaptic excitatory postsynaptic potentials or excitatory postsynaptic currents in wide-dynamic-range neurons of the deep dorsal horn were also attenuated by phenylephrine (40 microM). CONCLUSION: The observations suggest that GABAergic interneurons possess somatodendritic alpha1 receptors, and activation of these receptors excites inhibitory interneurons. The alpha1 actions reported herein may contribute to the analgesic action of intrathecally administered phenylephrine.  (+info)

Long-term gene expression in the anterior horn motor neurons after intramuscular inoculation of a live herpes simplex virus vector. (5/130)

To clarify the feasibility of the herpes simplex virus (HSV) vector in expressing the foreign gene in the motor neuron, we inoculated a live attenuated HSV expressing beta-galactosidase (beta-gal) activity under a latency-associated transcript promoter in the right gastrocnemius muscle of rats. Expression of beta-gal activity was observed 5 days after inoculation in the bilateral anterior horn cells of the spinal cord that innervates the inoculation muscle. However, the spread of beta-gal activity was not observed in the inoculation muscle. Without significant pathological changes, the spread of beta-gal-expressing neurons was observed in the lumbosacral spinal cord until 14 days after inoculation with staining concentrated in the anterior horn cells. Ninety percent of the anterior horn motor neurons expressed beta-gal activity with expression continuing to at least 182 days after inoculation. Thus beta-gal activity was expressed in the bilateral anterior horn cells at the lumbosacral spinal cord that innervates the inoculated muscle for a long time, possibly a life-long period. This indicates that this recombinant HSV vector system to motor neurons may further improve the understanding and treatment of neurological diseases in motor neurons of the spinal cord.  (+info)

Depression of group Ia monosynaptic EPSPs in cat hindlimb motoneurones during fictive locomotion. (6/130)

The effects of fictive locomotion on monosynaptic EPSPs recorded in motoneurones and extracellular field potentials recorded in the ventral horn were examined during brainstem-evoked fictive locomotion in decerebrate cats. Composite homonymous and heteronymous EPSPs and field potentials were evoked by group I intensity (<= 2T) stimulation of ipsilateral hindlimb muscle nerves. Ninety-one of the 98 monosynaptic EPSPs were reduced in amplitude during locomotion (mean depression of the 91 was to 66 % of control values); seven increased in amplitude (to a mean of 121 % of control). Twenty-one of the 22 field potentials were depressed during locomotion (mean depression to 72 % of control). All but 14 Ia EPSPs were smaller during both the flexion and extension phases of locomotion than during control. In 35 % of the cases there was < 5 % difference between the amplitudes of the EPSPs evoked during the flexion and extension phases. In 27 % of the cases EPSPs evoked during flexion were larger than those evoked during extension. The remaining 38 % of EPSPs were larger during extension. There was no relation between either the magnitude of EPSP depression or the locomotor phase in which maximum EPSP depression occurred and whether an EPSP was recorded in a flexor or extensor motoneurone. The mean recovery time of both EPSP and field potential amplitudes following the end of a bout of locomotion was approximately 2 min (range, < 10 to > 300 s). Motoneurone membrane resistance decreased during fictive locomotion (to a mean of 61 % of control, n = 22). Because these decreases were only weakly correlated to EPSP depression (r 2 = 0.31) they are unlikely to fully account for this depression. The depression of monosynaptic EPSPs and group I field potentials during locomotion is consistent with the hypothesis that during fictive locomotion there is a tonic presynaptic regulation of synaptic transmission from group Ia afferents to motoneurones and interneurones. Such a reduction in neurotransmitter release would decrease group Ia monosynaptic reflex excitation during locomotion. This reduction may contribute to the tonic depression of stretch reflexes occurring in the decerebrate cat during locomotion.  (+info)

White matter injury in spinal cord ischemia: protection by AMPA/kainate glutamate receptor antagonism. (7/130)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Spinal cord ischemia is a serious complication of surgery of the aorta. NMDA receptor activation secondary to ischemia-induced release of glutamate is a major mechanism of neuronal death in gray matter. White matter injury after ischemia results in long-tract dysfunction and disability. The AMPA/kainate receptor mechanism has recently been implicated in white matter injury. METHODS: We studied the effects of AMPA/kainate receptor blockade on ischemic white matter injury in a rat model of spinal cord ischemia. RESULTS: Intrathecal administration of an AMPA/kainate antagonist, 6-nitro-7-sulfamoyl-(f)-quinoxaline-2, 3-dione (NBQX), 1 hour before ischemia reduced locomotor deficit, based on the Basso-Beattie-Bresnahan scale (0=total paralysis; 21=normal) (sham: 21+/-0, n=3; saline: 3.7+/-4.5, n=7; NBQX: 12. 7+/-7.0, n=7, P<0.05) 6 weeks after ischemia. Gray matter damage and neuronal loss in the ventral horn were evident after ischemia, but no difference was noted between the saline and NBQX groups. The extent of white matter injury was quantitatively assessed, based on axonal counts, and was significantly less in the NBQX as compared with the saline group in the ventral (sham: 1063+/-44/200x200 microm, n=3; saline: 556+/-104, n=7; NBQX: 883+/-103, n=7), ventrolateral (sham: 1060+/-135, n=3; saline: 411+/-66, n=7; NBQX: 676+/-122, n=7), and corticospinal tract (sham: 3391+/-219, n=3; saline: 318+/-23, n=7; NBQX: 588+/-103, n=7) in the white matter on day 42. CONCLUSIONS: Results indicate severe white matter injury in the spinal cord after transient ischemia. NBQX, an AMPA/kainate receptor antagonist, reduced ischemia-induced white matter injury and improved locomotor function.  (+info)

Delaying caspase activation by Bcl-2: A clue to disease retardation in a transgenic mouse model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. (8/130)

Molecular mechanisms of apoptosis may participate in motor neuron degeneration produced by mutant copper/zinc superoxide dismutase (mSOD1), the only proven cause of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Consistent with this, herein we show that the spinal cord of transgenic mSOD1 mice is the site of the sequential activation of caspase-1 and caspase-3. Activated caspase-3 and its produced beta-actin cleavage fragments are found in apoptotic neurons in the anterior horn of the spinal cord of affected transgenic mSOD1 mice; although such neurons are few, their scarcity should not undermine the potential importance of apoptosis in the overall mSOD1-related neurodegeneration. Overexpression of the anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2 attenuates neurodegeneration and delays activation of the caspases and fragmentation of beta-actin. These data demonstrate that caspase activation occurs in this mouse model of ALS during neurodegeneration. Our study also suggests that modulation of caspase activity may provide protective benefit in the treatment of ALS, a view that is consistent with our recent demonstration of caspase inhibition extending the survival of transgenic mSOD1 mice.  (+info)

Hopkins syndrome is a neurological disorder. Its cause has not been established, but its association with asthma exacerbations (usually with a respiratory infection as a trigger) has led to suspicion that the initial viral insult that causes the respiratory infection is also implicated in the subsequent paralysis. Herpes simplex virus type I DNA has been found in the cerebrospinal fluid of at least one patient diagnosed with Hopkins syndrome. In several cases, anti-viral antibody titers for echovirus, enterovirus, coxsackievirus and poliovirus types 1, 2 and 3 were specifically sought; all were negative., There is one reported case in which Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection was found in the patient. The syndrome appears to involve the spinal cord: specifically, the anterior horn cells subserving the affected muscles are often damaged. The evidence for anterior horn cell involvement comes from radiological ,, and electromyographical studies. In one case, a biopsy of an affected muscle "revealed ...

Neuromuscular disease or neuromuscular medicine specifically pertains to diseases of nerve roots, anterior horn cells, which are located in the spinal cord,
direct stimulation of the muscle at its tendon insertion and not through its nerve. The increase in galvanic irritability is coincident with increased mechanical irritability, or increased ideomuscular reflex, demonstrated by tapping the muscle. It is worth noting in this connection the interesting observations made by Langley15 that immediately following section of the nerve the paralyzed muscle is in a state of constant fibrillary twitching, during the time when rapid atrophy is taking place. The association of increased electrical and mechanical irritability, the constant fibrillarv activity, and the rapid atrophy when the nervous control of the muscle is removed are instructive as illustrating the loss of inhibition brought about by severing the connection between the anterior horn cell and the muscle. Practically it is possible to utilize this increase in irritabilitv in examination and treatment. The use of strong currents causes contraction of healthy muscles, which may be misinterpreted ...

The present study shows that both pro-caspase-1 and -3 are expressed constitutively in the spinal cords of normal mice (see Fig.4) and that caspase-1 and -3 mRNA levels are unchanged or slightly increased during the course of the disease in transgenic mSOD1 mice (see Fig. 1). Immunolabeling for both pro-caspases was found in the neuropil and within numerous cells with a neuronal morphology throughout the gray matter of the spinal cords. Pro-caspase immunoreactivity was most intense in large motor neurons of the anterior horn, the known primary targets of the neurodegenerative process in ALS. In contrast to the abundance of pro-caspase-positive neurons in the anterior horn of normal animals, only a few of these neurons were seen in early symptomatic transgenic mSOD1 mice and even fewer in end-stage transgenic mSOD1 mice (see Fig. 4). This observation is consistent with the fact that spinal cord of symptomatic transgenic mSOD1 mice is the site of a dramatic loss of primarily, but not exclusively, ...
Interleukin 1 is a pleiotropic cytokine that mediates diverse functions through its receptor, type I interleukin 1 receptor (IL-1R1). Most previous studies have focused on the expression and function of IL-1R1 in immune cells. Here we performed a comprehensive mapping of IL-1R1 distribution in multiple peripheral tissues using our IL-1R1 reporter (IL-1R1GR/GR) mice. This method yielded the highest sensitivity of in situ detection of IL-1R1 mRNA and protein. Besides validating previously reported IL-1R1 expression in the endocrine tissues including pituitary and pancreas, our results refuted previously reported exclusive IL-1R1 expression in neurons of the spinal cord dorsal horn and dorsal root ganglia (DRG ...
Pathogenic variants in the GLE1 gene cause two related disorders, known as lethal congenital contracture syndrome 1 and lethal arthrogryposis with anterior horn cell disease. Lethal congenital contracture syndrome 1 is a fatal form of arthrogryposis, a disorder characterized by non-progressive joint contractures that are present at birth. The spinal cord is thin and the skeletal muscles are extremely small and underdeveloped. Fetuses affected by this disorder die before birth. Lethal arthrogryposis with anterior horn cell disease presents at birth with multiple joint contractures and facial anomalies. Anterior horn motor neurons, which control movement of the trunk and head, are degenerated. Death occurs in the first days of life. Specific GLE1 variants have been associated with the two diseases, and therefore the phenotype may be predicted in most patients based on the genetic variants inherited. ...

Late one night, sometime shortly after Olivia was born, one of my oldest and dearest friends called, planning to leave me a supportive voicemail. I surprised her, by picking up the phone. We spoke for quite awhile. I shared with her more details about Olivias status, her condition, my emotions, than I had with anyone else. See… shes one of my oldest friends, shes incredibly straight forward… and shes a nurse. Not only is she a nurse, but shes a nurse in an intensive care unit. The words surgical and trauma are in there somewhere too. Maybe in a different state - with adults, not neonates - but regardless, shes a STICU nurse so she sees a lot of crazy, messed up shit on the regular.. She said a lot that night, but one of the more simple, sticking points was: we have to be prepared for good days and bad days.. Maybe a lot of good days followed by a couple of bad days. Maybe some bad days followed by just one, glorious, good day. But that it was going to be a journey. An up and down, and ...
Proximal spinal muscular atrophy is an autosomal recessive disorder with an overall incidence of 1 in 10000 live births and a carrier frequency of 1 in 50. This severe neuromuscular disease is characterized by a degeneration and loss of alpha motor neurons of the spinal cord anterior horn cells, which results in progressive symmetrical weakness, atrophy of the proximal voluntary muscles, and infant death. Here, we present a new, rapid, simple and high reliable method to detect the SMN1 deletion and to determine the copy number of the SMN1 and SMN2 by denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC). We demonstrate that this assay is able to accurately distinguish 2 gene copies from 4 gene copies and it can identify SMA carriers and normal populations by the accurate determination of SMN copy number.. Fecal DNA testing is a promising tool for colorectal cancer screening. Researchers have shown that DNA to be a good marker since it is stable in the stool; it shed continuously; and, ...
This is the first report discribing the occurrence of asthmatic amyotrophy after puberty. All of our patients developed amyotrophy with a close temporal relation to an acute asthma attack. Asthmatic amyotrophy in childhood is called Hopkins syndrome.1 Our patient 1 fits well into this category. Two other patients in adulthood, however, did not, because they showed an involvement of either the posterior horns or the pyramidal tract as well as anterior horn cell involvement clinically and electrophysiologically. In addition, patient 2 also showed an additional episode of myelitis after another asthma attack, although no relapse has ever been reported in cases of Hopkins syndrome.1-13 According to the results of electrophysiological studies, patient 1 seemed to have a subtle involvement of the peripheral nerves whereas patient 3 had an additional lesion between Erbs point and the spinal cord. Such an involvement with either the peripheral nerves2 or the spinal root3 9 has occasionally been ...

The Spg7-/- mice created by Ferreirinha et al. (2) develop a neuropathologic phenotype of a distal axonopathy characterized by swelling and degeneration in spinal and peripheral axons. Although the axonopathy does not occur until 8 months of age, Spg7-/- mice develop mitochondrial abnormalities in their axons at 4.5 months of age, a time when they already exhibit motor deficits as evidenced by impaired ability to maintain their balance on a rotating rod. These mitochondrial abnormalities include hypertrophy, concentric cristae, herniations, and the appearance of giant mitochondria. Mitochondria with concentric cristae are often seen in normal and pathologic conditions with increased cellular metabolic activity.. Two additional striking findings emerge from this study: at every age studied, the percentage of axons containing abnormal mitochondria greatly exceeded the number of swollen or degenerated axons; and abnormal mitochondria were present in synaptic terminals in the anterior horn of the ...
The clinical and neuroradiologic features in 22 patients with septooptic dysplasia are reviewed. The most consistent abnormality seen in 15 patients was absence of the septum pellucidum and flattening of the roofs and inferior pointing of the floors of the anterior horns of the lateral ventricles. Hypoplasia of the anterior optic pathways was seen in 10 patients and a primitive optic ventricle was seen in two others. All patients had clinical optic disc hypoplasia; 12 patients had pituitary hormonal deficiencies. In most instances the diagnosis of septooptic dysplasia can be established by physical examination but neuroradiologic study is required to document associated structural abnormalities.. ...
The lethal congenital contracture syndrome (LCCS, Herva disease) is an autosomal recessive syndrome that causes prenatal death of affected fetuses before the 32nd gestational week. Prenatal diagnosis is based on fetal akinesia, which is detectable in ultrasonography after the 14th gestational week. The akinesia develops due to degenaration of anterior horn motor neurons, which leads to multiple contractures of the joints. The other key features are slow growth, hydrops in early pregnancy and dysmorphic features.

Spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) represent a rare group of inherited disorders that cause progressive degeneration of the anterior horn cells of the spinal cord. The exact cause of the degeneration is unknown.
Introduction: ALS is the most common form of motor neuron disease and is characterized by progressive and relentless loss of both upper and lower motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord. Decease, usually from respiratory failure, within 3 to 5 years from symptom onset.In about 10% of cases, ALS is autosomal dominant with age-dependent penetrance. Examination reveals mixed upper and lower motor neuron signs. The diagnosis of ALS is usually straightforward clinically. Electromyography evidence in support of the diagnosis is mandatory.. Objective: Observe the changes at the muscle biopsy in patients with ALS .. Methods: Muscle biopsy was performed in the deltoid muscle, which is processed in isopentane precooled in liquid nitrogen. Cuts are made of eight microns thick. Staining techniques and histochemistry are H&E, Gomori trichrome and NADH.. Results: Typically, there is loss of pyramidal neurons of the corticospinal tract with loss and degeneration of large anterior horn cells and brainstem ...
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is relatively common in humans and is caused by loss of the survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene. SMA is the leading cause of hereditary infant mortality by causing anterior horn cell degeneration in the spinal cord resulting in trunk and limb paralysis. The survival motor neuron 2 (SMN2) gene is located proximally to the SMN1 gene on chromosome 5q and the two genes are almost identical. Interestingly, only mutations in SMN1 cause SMA, whereas mutations in SMN2 have no clinical consequence. A differential pre-mRNA splicing event results in SMN2s failure to compensate fully for SMN1 mutations. Exon 7 is excised during SMN2 RNA splicing and this causes expression of a non-functional gene product. SMN2 produces the SMN protein at low levels (~10% compared to SMN1) but not enough to compensate for the loss of SMN1. Previous studies have shown that the use of antisense oligonucleotides can significantly decrease recognition of the 3 ...
An investigation has been carried out on the stability of several enzymes in portions of rabbit brain and spinal cord kept at controlled temperatures between 22 and 37° C for periods up to 24 hours before processing for enzyme activity. The enzymes studied were NAD diaphorase, succinate, lactate, glutamate and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenases, and monoamine oxidase. One-wavelength "plug" cytophotometric measurements of enzyme activity were carried out on Purkinje cells, neuropil of the granular layer of the cerebellar cortex and on anterior horn cells. Succinate dehydrogenase activity proved to be stable after 24 hours post-mortem exposure at 37°C. Lactate dehydrogenase, NAD diaphorase and monoamine oxidase activities were less stable at the higher temperatures but were stable at 22°C. Glutamate and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activities fell significantly with exposure at 22°C. It thus appears possible to make valid histochemical measurements of the activities of certain oxidative ...
Lower Motor Neuron Weakness This pattern results from disorders of cell bodies of lower motor neurons in the brainstem motor nuclei and the anterior horn of the spinal cord, or from dysfunction of the axons of these neurons as they pass to skeletal muscle (Fig. 232). Weakness is due to a decrease in the number of muscle fibers that can be activated, through a loss of α motor neurons or disruption of their connections to muscle. Loss of γmotor neurons does not cause weakness but decreases tension on the muscle spindles, which decreases muscle tone and attenuates the stretch reflexes... ...
Traditionally, it has been described as a disease manifested by progressive weakness and atrophy of skeletal, spinal and bulbar muscles because of the degeneration of motor neurons in the anterior horn of the spinal cord and the corticospinal system. Generally, the sensory function is maintained. It is accompanied by slurred speech (dysarthria) and difficulty swallowing. Emotional lability also frequently occurs.

The study of the epidemiology of infantile paralysis must take into consideration three types of the disease, namely: 1. The mild abortive type representing a systematic infection. 2. The non-paralytic meningic type representing invasion of the central nervous system by the virus. 3. The paralytic type indicating destruction of the cells in the anterior horn of the spinal cord.
The outer edges of each meniscus attach to the tibia by the short coronary ligaments. Other short ligaments attach the ends of the menisci to the tibial surface. The inner edges are free to move because they are not attached to the bone. This lets the menisci change shape as the joint moves. The front portion of the meniscus is referred to as the anterior horn, the back portion is the posterior horn, and the middle section is the body.. Under the microscope, the meniscus is fibrocartilage that has strength and flexibility from collagen fiber. Its resilience is due to the high water content in the spaces between the cells. There is not much blood supply to the menisci. Blood flows only to the outer edges from small arteries around the joint. The poor blood supply to the inner portion of the meniscus makes it difficult for the meniscus to heal.. ...

OMIM : 56 X-linked infantile spinal muscular atrophy (XL-SMA) is characterized by neonatal onset of severe hypotonia, areflexia, and multiple congenital contractures, known as arthrogryposis, associated with loss of anterior horn cells and infantile death (summary by Ramser et al., 2008). Historically, Hall et al. (1982) distinguished at least 3 clinical varieties of X-linked arthrogryposis. (1) One family had a severe lethal form with severe contractures, scoliosis, chest deformities, hypotonia, micrognathia, and death from respiratory insufficiency by age 3 months. Apparently progressive loss of anterior horn cells was the cause. (2) Two families had moderately severe AMC associated with ptosis, microphallus, cryptorchidism, inguinal hernias, and normal intelligence. Nonprogressive intrauterine myopathy appeared to be the cause. (3) In 2 families and a sporadic case, the disorder took the form of a resolving AMC, with mild to moderate contractures improving dramatically with time, normal ...
The anterior grey column (also called the anterior cornu, anterior horn of spinal cord or ventral horn) is the front column of grey matter in the spinal cord. It is one of the three grey columns. The anterior grey column contains motor neurons that affect the skeletal muscles while the posterior grey column receives information regarding touch and sensation. The anterior grey column is the column where the cell bodies of alpha motor neurons are located. The anterior grey column, directed forward, is broad and of a rounded or quadrangular shape. Its posterior part is termed the base, and its anterior part the head, but these are not differentiated from each other by any well-defined constriction. It is separated from the surface of the medulla spinalis by a layer of white substance which is traversed by the bundles of the anterior nerve roots. In the thoracic region, the postero-lateral part of the anterior column projects laterally as a triangular field, which is named the lateral grey column. ...

Ubiquitinated cytoplasmic inclusions are a characteristic feature of the neuronal pathology of neurodegenerative diseases. Immunocytochemical techniques have identified intermediate filaments associated with ubiquitin-immunoreactive inclusions in Alzheimers disease (AD), Parkinsons disease (PD), and Picks disease; however, no core protein has been detected in the ubiquitinated inclusions in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The pathogenesis of these inclusions is not known but the inclusion may result from an accumulation of an abnormal proteins. Here we report a novel protein of 32.5 kDa detected by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in the spinal cord in ALS patients. A polyclonal antibody raised against this protein and used for Western blotting, suggests that the novel protein is related to actin. Immunocytochemical studies using this antibody indicate that the protein is found in Lewy body-like inclusions in anterior horn cells of ALS, and in Lewy bodies in the substantia nigra in ...
Neurolathyrism is a neurological condition seen among people who eat the seeds of Lathyrus sativus as a principal source of food energy for 2 months or more. It is characterised by severe muscular rigidity and irreversible spastic paralysis of the lower limbs, spinal hyperreflexia, and structural changes of the skeleton and connective tissue (18-19). Once prevalent throughout Europe, N. Africa, the Middle East and parts of the Far East, the disease is presently restricted to India, Bangladesh and Ethiopia (20). The biochemical mechanism involves beta-N-Oxalyl amino-L-alanine (L-BOAA); a synonym is beta-N-oxalyl-alpha,beta-diaminopropionic acid (beta-ODAP). This is a naturally occurring non-protein amino acid present in Blue vetch. Ingestion of L-BOAA in a staple diet results in a progressive neurodegenerative condition, a form of motor neuron disease that affects the upper motor neurons and anterior horn cells of the lumbar spinal cord. L-BOAA is an excitatory acid and acts as an agonist at the ...
History: The patient is a 16 year old male elite soccer player who presented with pain in both knees. Symptoms had been present in the left knee for approximately 1 year and the right for several months. The was no history of any significant knee injury. The patient was unable to continue playing soccer; moreover symptoms precluded even minimal physical weight bearing activities. The left knee lacked 15 degress of extension and the right 10 degrees. Tenderness was noted over the medial and patellar compartments bilaterally. No instability was noted.. Imaging results: An MRI of the right knee prior to his initial presentation revealed a horizontal tear of the body and anterior horn of the medial meniscus, with an adjacent parameniscal cyst measuring 2.7 cm x 4 mm. In addition, there was a horizontal upper-surface tear at the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus. A joint effusion was also reported. The MRI of the left knee indicated a lower-surface tear at the anterior horn of the medial mensicus ...

The spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) have been historically conceptualized as hereditary disorders preferentially affecting anterior horn cells and selected motor cranial nerve nuclei.1 As in all disorders caused or influenced by genetics, molecular biology has served to confound as much as clarify the nosology. We have become very aware that the historical boundaries of hereditary neuromuscular disease are inaccurate. Part of this confusion arises from phenotypic overlap. For example, although lower motor neuron (LMN) morbidity dominates most SMA phenotypes, upper motor neuron (UMN) features may occur in some forms of distal SMA. Conversely, hereditary spastic paraplegia is a predominantly UMN disorder but may have notable LMN features in some genotypes. Even more damaging to the historical nosology of hereditary neuromuscular disease is the discovery that mutations of a single gene may produce variable phenotypes that have been historically represented as two or more diseases (Table 8-1). ...
Ultrasonography (US) is a useful screening method for the diagnosis of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) and congenital spinal anomalies in infants. In addition, US is a useful, noninvasive imaging modality for the diagnosis of transient synovitis in children. The early detection of DDH leads to a better prognosis without surgical intervention. Moreover, spinal US allows the detection of congenital malformations and can also demonstrate normal anatomy and normal variants that may resemble disorders. Therefore, radiologists should be familiar with the sonographic anatomy of the normal infant hip, scanning and measurement techniques for DDH, the US features of transient synovitis in children, spinal US techniques, and the US features of normal anatomical structures, normal variants, and congenital spinal anomalies ...
Three months after gastric partitioning for morbid obesity, two patients developed an unusual and severe form of polyneuropathy that affected their sense of position maximally. This disorder produced severe ataxia of the upper extremities and trunk, and pseudochorea. One patient died and the autopsy showed an extensive demyelinating polyneuropathy. Neuronal cell bodies in the anterior horns and dorsal root ganglia showed extensive accumulations of lipofuscin and Schwann cells showed extensive accumulations of lipid. This neuronal and Schwann cell lipidosis appears to result from starvation of the obese and has never been reported in other forms of human starvation or nutritional deficiency. ...

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a disease characterized by progressive degeneration of motor neurons in the spinal cord. The disorder causes weakness and wasting of the voluntary muscles. This weakness is often more severe in the legs than in the arms. Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) affects the nerves in an area of the spinal cord called the anterior horn. These nerve cells become damaged, breaking the link between the brain and the muscles. As a result, the muscles cant be used and become wasted or atrophied. SMA affects the voluntary muscles (especially those closest to the trunk of the body) used for activities such as crawling, walking, head and neck control and swallowing.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Treatment of spinal muscular atrophy by sodium butyrate. AU - Chang, Jan Gowth. AU - Hsieh-Li, Hsiu Mei. AU - Jong, Yuh Jyh. AU - Wang, Nancy M.. AU - Tsai, Chang Hai. AU - Li, Hung. PY - 2001/8/14. Y1 - 2001/8/14. N2 - Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by degeneration of the anterior horn cells of the spinal cord, leading to muscular paralysis with muscular atrophy. No effective treatment of this disorder is presently available. Studies of the correlation between disease severity and the amount of survival motor neuron (SMN) protein have shown an inverse relationship. We report that sodium butyrate effectively increases the amount of exon 7-containing SMN protein in SMA lymphoid cell lines by changing the alternative splicing pattern of exon 7 in the SMN2 gene. In vivo, sodium butyrate treatment of SMA-like mice resulted in increased expression of SMN protein in motor neurons of the spinal cord and resulted in significant improvement ...
Measurement of the free radical detoxifing enzymes superoxide dismutases (copper/zinc superoxide dismutase (SOD I), manganese superoxide dismutase (SOD2), glutathione peroxidase (GSHPx) and catalase (CAT) at the site of motor neurone loss (i.e. the anterior horn in the spinal cord) showed a significant increase in the percentage of SOD2, in MND patients than controls, at the thoracic level. GSHPX activity was approximately 10-fold higher in the white matter of the spinal cord compared to that in the gray matter, whilst CAT activity was approximately 100-fold higher than GSHPX and equally distributed between the white and gray matter of the spinal cord ...

From UniProt:. Neuronopathy, distal hereditary motor, 7A (HMN7A): A neuromuscular disorder. Distal hereditary motor neuronopathies constitute a heterogeneous group of neuromuscular disorders caused by selective degeneration of motor neurons in the anterior horn of the spinal cord, without sensory deficit in the posterior horn. The overall clinical picture consists of a classical distal muscular atrophy syndrome in the legs without clinical sensory loss. The disease starts with weakness and wasting of distal muscles of the anterior tibial and peroneal compartments of the legs. Later on, weakness and atrophy may expand to the proximal muscles of the lower limbs and/or to the distal upper limbs. HMN7A is characterized by onset in the second decade of progressive distal muscle wasting and weakness affecting the upper and lower limbs and resulting in walking difficulties and hand grip. There is significant muscle atrophy of the hands and lower limbs. The disorder is associated with vocal cord paresis ...
