The proteins synthesized by the glial sheath of an isolated segment of squid giant axon and by the cell bodies of the giant axon in the isolated stellate ganglion were labeled by incubation in the presence of [3H]leucine. The axoplasm, which contained labeled proteins transferred from the glial sheath, was separated from the sheath by mechanical extrusion. The labeled proteins in the axoplasm, the empty sheath and the stellate ganglion were analyzed and compared by one- and two-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
