Axoplasmic flow of proteins is interrlupted in cats with neuropatlhy induced by acrylamide, but it is niot initerrupted in nzormlal cats and in those with neuropathy induced by tri-orthocresyl phiospliate. The proteins move from lumbosacral motor neurons along the ventral roots and from ganglion cells toward the spinal cord along the dorsal roots at about 1½ millimeters per day.
