106 Further, wvlwv granule cells were found to create a dysmorphic appearance in +1+ Golgi epithelial cells; such an effect could be due to an impaired trophic interaction between weaver granule cells and normal astrocytes, possibly mediated by astrotactin, a 100 kDa protein localized to cerebellar granule cells and reduced by more than 95% in the weaver cerebellum. I08-110 The grafts displayed a layered cellular organization reminiscent of the normal cerebellar cortex, with identifiable molecular, Purkinje cell and granule cell layers.

I04 Neurite outgrowth was followed in cerebellar cultures by measuring the mean total length of processes generated per neuron; after six days in vitro, that parameter is reduced by 88% in wv/wv and by 53% in wv/+, compared to +/+ cerebellum. Time-lapse microcinematography shows that the defect in homozygous weaver cells is not in the initiation ofneurites, but in neurite maintenance and elongation. 106 Further, wvlwv granule cells were found to create a dysmorphic appearance in +1+ Golgi epithelial cells; such an effect could be due to an impaired trophic interaction between weaver granule cells and normal astrocytes, possibly mediated by astrotactin, a 100 kDa protein localized to cerebellar granule cells and reduced by more than 95% in the weaver cerebellum.
