Mice were > 16 weeks old. (E) through (J) H & E-stained sectionsof formalin-fixed and decalcified paws. (E) through (G) Hindpaws (total magnification, ×40). (E) NAR littermate. (F) 46-day-old AR mouse 7 days after onset. (G) 141-day-old AR mouse 103 days after onset. (H) through (J) Forepaws (total magnification, ×100). (H) NAR littermate.
