Abstract

We examined the inferior olivary nucleus from four cases of olivary hypertrophy and six control cases immunohistochemically with an anti-synaptophysin (SYP) antibody. Our study revealed the altered SYP-immunoreactive pattern in the hypertrophied olives, consisting of an increased number of SYP-immunoreactive dots on neuronal cell bodies in spite of its decreased immunoreactivity in the neuropil. Because SYP is a marker protein for presynaptic vesicles, presynaptic terminals in the inferior olivary nucleus seem to change their distribution during the course of olivary hypertrophy.
