Isoelectric focusing of proteins (IEF) in ultrathin-layer polyacrylamide gel (0.4 mm, PAG), followed by direct immunofixation with monospecific antiserum and silver staining, is a highly specific, sensitive and simple method for the demonstration of oligoclonal IgG in unconcentrated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples (5-10 microliters). For the present(More)
