Cultures of rat oligodendrocytes were used to test the possible role of the cerebellar soluble lectin (CSL) in myelin formation. Immunocytochemistry at the ultrastructural level showed that the lectin is present in the cytoplasm of the perikaryon of cultured oligodendrocytes and also on the plasma membrane of the cell body and processes. It is present in compact myelin and in the zones of contacts between different myelin sheaths or oligodendrocyte membranes. Staining of blots of the cultures… CONTINUE READING
