Lind LA, Lever TE, Nichols NL (2021) Tongue and hypoglossal morphology after intralingual cholera toxin B-saporin injection. Muscle Nerve 63(3):413-420. doi: 10.1002/mus.27131
Objective: To evaluate tongue morphology and ultrastructural changes in hypoglossal neurons and nerve fibers in an inducible rat model of dysphagia.
Summary: Preliminary results indicate this model may have translational application to a variety of neurodegenerative diseases resulting in tongue dysfunction and associated dysphagia.
Usage: Rats assigned to the CTB-SAP group (n = 10) received 25 μg CTB-SAP to produce hypoglossal motor neuron death.
