Axoplasmic flow of proteins is interrupted in cats with neuropathy induced by acrylamide, but it is not interrupted in normal cats and in those with neuropathy induced by tri-orthocresyl phosphate. 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 11/2 millimeters per day.
