    ..We conclude that the remarkable life-span extension of Ames dwarf mice, and the stress resistance of cells from these mice, depends on low levels of GH exposure in juvenile and very young adult mice. ..

    ..With respect to neuropathology, our results indicate that pathological stains as opposed to neurotransmitter markers are much more informative and sensitive as markers of prion disease in mouse models. ..
