Ultrastructurally the Pick bodies contain a mixture of filamentous elements of different structure, including normal NF, as well as 15Jlm straight tubules and some PHF. , 1985). , 1986). Parkinson's disease: is a frequent neurodegenerative disorder characterized by muscle hypertonus and tremor. Neuropathology shows selective loss of pigmented neurons of substantia nigra and locus coeruleus. Due to the nigra-lesions the concentration of dopamine in the neostriatum is highly reduced. A characteristic histological feature is the appearance of Lewy bodies in the cytoplasm of affected neurons.
1985). In recent studies it turned out that the neurofilament reactivity of NFT is due to shared antigenic determinants between certain phosphorylated neurofilament epitopes and phosphorylated epitopes of the tau protein. , 1985). ) Another series of studies indicates the presence of antigenic determinants which seem to be unique to NFT. ). At present it became obvious that these antibodies recognize determinants of tau protein, of not identified components of NFT (possibly true neoantigens) and also of ubiquitin.
