The three muscle sheets had significantly different neurite densities in the a-tubulin-IR motor nerve net (F(2,16) = 169.
However, motor nerve deterioration was higher in the group B (25%) as compared to group A (14%), despite reaction severity being higher in the latter (25% vs 5%).

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrigs disease, is a lethal, progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects the motor nerve cells in both the brain and the spinal cord.
In ALS, the variability between MUPs or MUP components results from asynchronous conduction at the motor nerve terminal and neuromuscular junction.
Typically, nerve conduction studies confirm marked impairment of sensory nerve conduction velocities and absent sensory nerve action potentials, but motor nerve conduction velocities are at or slightly below the normal limit.
