The mechanism of actin incorporation and turnover in the nerve growth cone was examined by immunoelectron microscopy and low-light-level video microscopy of cultured neurons injected with biotin-labeled actin or fluorescently labeled actin. We first determined the sites of actin incorporation into the cytoskeleton of growth cones by immunoelectron microscopy of cultured neurons injected with biotin-labeled actin and reacted with an anti-biotin antibody and a gold-labeled secondary antibody… CONTINUE READING
