On aneurally cultured rat primary myotubes, 10% of the acetylcholine receptors (AcChoR) are found to be aggregated and immobilized in endogenous clusters while the remainder are diffusely distributed and partially mobile. This paper reports that AcChoR in clusters can be gathered from AcChoR in diffuse areas during the course of normal myotube development. AcChoR were fluorescently labeled with rhodamine-conjugated alpha-bungarotoxin, and all existing clusters in a circumscribed region of the… CONTINUE READING
