The neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM), a membrane glycoprotein which plays critical roles in cell-cell recognition and in the maintenance of cytoarchitecture in the adult brain, may be modulated in response to injury. To determine whether neurotoxic insult alters the profile of NCAM expression, adult female Balb/c mice were given a single injection of(More)
The brain relies upon numerous morphoregulatory molecules to control cell-cell interactions, cell migration and neurite extension. N-cadherin, a calcium-dependent cell adhesion molecule, is essential for normal CNS development. Homophilic binding of N-cadherin depends upon a specific conformation assumed by the molecule when it binds calcium. N-cadherin is(More)
Normal development of the nervous system depends upon complex physical interactions between cells and their local environment. These interactions are mediated by several families of cell adhesion molecules (CAMs). Differential expression and function of CAMs are operative in neural tube formation, neuron migration, in post-migratory differentiation, and(More)
The expression of the calcium-dependent adhesion molecule N-cadherin during chick embryo central nervous system (CNS) development was examined by immunohistochemistry and electrophoresis and immunoblotting. During histogenesis, N-cadherin is expressed at high levels in a uniform fashion in many regions of the CNS. However, during later stages of(More)
