Characterization of a cell surface adhesion molecule expressed by a subset of developing chick neurons.

We have isolated a 105-kDa membrane glycoprotein expressed by subsets of developing chick neurons. This glycoprotein, identified by the JC7 monoclonal antibody, is present on the surface of axons and cell bodies of developing spinal motor neurons, dorsal root ganglion sensory neurons, sympathetic and parasympathetic neurons, and a small subset of brain… CONTINUE READING
