Extent of denervation in muscles from SOD-G93A mice.

A, B) NMJs in muscles from symptomatic (A) or end-stage (B) SOD-G93A mice listed were scored as fully innervated, partially denervated or fully denervated. Values are shown for 14–16 weeks old symptomatic (A) and 19 weeks old end-stage mice (B). C) NMJs from soleus and tibialis anterior muscles of end stage mice, stained as in Fig. 9. Scale bar = 10 µm. Some NMJs remain partially innervated in soleus, but most NMJs are fully denervated with dispersed postsynaptic structures in tibialis anterior.
