Measuring Neuromuscular Junction Functionality Emanuele Rizzuto1, Simona Pisu2, Carmine Nicoletti2, Zaccaria Del Prete1,3, Antonio Musarò2,3 1Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Sapienza University of Rome, 2Institute Pasteur Cenci-Bolognetti, DAHFMO-Unit of Histology and Medical Embryology, Sapienza University of Rome, 3Center for Life Nano Science@Sapienza, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia A functional assessment of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) can provide essential information on the communication between muscle and nerve. Here we describe a protocol to comprehensively evaluate both the NMJ and muscle functionality using two different muscle-nerve preparations, i.e. soleus-sciatic and diaphragm-phrenic.
