Effects of Nerve Injury and Colchicine Treatment on the Recovery of Non-Specific Cholinesterase Activity in Specialized Schwann Cells of Rat Simple Lamellar Corpuscles
The high level of non-specific cholinesterase (nCHE) activity is a remarkable feature of sensory corpuscles. In the light microscope, the nCHE staining persists in sensory corpuscles for a long time after nerve lesion. However, the electron microscopical findings suggest that the interaction with intact axon terminals is indispensable for the synthesis of nCHE in the sensory corpuscles (Idé, 1982a, b).
