The transport of tubulin and neurofilament protein subunits from the preterminal axons of guinea pig retinal ganglion cells into their presynaptic terminals in the superior colliculus was examined. Newly synthesized tubulin and neurofilament proteins were radiolabeled with tritiated amino acids in the cell bodies and were allowed to be axonally transported through the optic axons and into the terminals in the superior colliculi. Superior colliculi were harvested at appropriate times… CONTINUE READING
