A specific 37,000-dalton protein that accumulates in regenerating but not in nonregenerating mammalian nerves.

Abstract

A 37-kilodalton protein is synthesized at higher rates in the peripheral and central nervous system of newborn rats than in adult animals. As a specific response to denervation, the synthesis of the 37-kilodalton protein is increased in the mature peripheral and central nervous system; however, this protein accumulates only in the peripheral nervous system… (More)
