Monoamine oxidase-B in motor cortex and spinal cord in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis studied by quantitative autoradiography
The distribution of MAO-B was studied by using an in vitro quantitative autoradiographical method in the post-mortem spinal cord and motor cortex from control and ALS cases. 3H-L-deprenyl was used as a radiotracer. Sections stained with thionine were used to count glial cells.
