A monoclonal antibody to glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and a polyclonal antiserum to the S-100 protein were used to study the expression of these astrocytic proteins in the postnatal visual cortex of the cat. Three changes in antigen expression of these astroglial markers could be distinguished over development. First, the density of cells in the white matter, which are heavily labelled with both antibodies from birth until adulthood, diminishes after the third postnatal weeks. By… CONTINUE READING
