Diseases and Induced Lesions of the Neuromuscular Endplate

  • Edith Heilbronn


This chapter specifically addresses the issue of disorders of the neuromuscular junction at the mammalian skeletal muscle. Such disorders may be part of a disease or may be the result of the action of chemical agents, immunogenic compounds, or even transferred antibodies to proteins of the nerve-muscle synapse. Compounds of the latter category have been used to mimic diseases and have been used as tools in the elucidation of the function of the neuromuscular junction and the molecular events behind transmission there.
