Representative images (IMAGE) Tel-Aviv University Caption Representative images showing the neuromuscular junctions of model animals used in the study. Right: healthy neuromuscular junction characterized by complete innervation of the receptors on the muscle (green) by the motor nerve (in red). Center: degenerated neuromuscular junction in diseased model mice, showing the disruption of the motor nerve (red) and the reduction in the receptor area on the muscle in response to the disruption (green). Left: neuromuscular junction in diseased model mice after clearing the TDP-43 protein from nerve extensions. Image demonstrated the renewed innervation the receptors on the muscle (green) by the motor nerve extension (red). Credit Tel Aviv University Usage Restrictions No restrictions.
