Labeled proteins transported in rat sciatic nerve axons after application of L-(35S) methionine to motoneuron cell bodies were characterized by SDS0poly-acrylamide gel electrophoresis. During nerve regeneration following a crush injury, changes were observed in the composition of the fast-transported proteins. The major change was an increase in relative amount of a 18,000-dalton poly-peptide (S2). Less dramatic changes occurred in a 66,000-dalton polypeptide (N) which also increased, and in a… CONTINUE READING
