Nerve growth cones isolated from fetal rat brain exhibit in their cytosol a robust level of phospholipase A2 activity hydrolyzing phosphatidylinositol (PI) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) but not phosphatidylcholine (PC). Western blot analysis with an antibody to the well-characterized cytosolic phospholipase A2 (mol wt 85,000) reveals only trace amounts(More)
An ultrastructural stereological analysis was performed to analyze the morphological differentiation of primary cultures of fetal rat brain neurons, growing for two weeks in a serum-free medium. The number of neurons and of gliofibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)-positive glial cells was estimated by light microscopy counting in the culture wells. These(More)
Cultured rat fetal brain cells underwent morphological differentiation, as quantitatively described in the companion paper. In the same system, biochemical and immunolabeling studies were performed to analyze the developmental changes in neural cell adhesion molecule (N-CAM) distribution and quantity at the cell surface of neurons. The cell(More)
