Light and electron microscopic localization of a cell surface antigen (NG2) in the rat cerebellum: association with smooth protoplasmic astrocytes.


Immunofluorescence and immunoperoxidase techniques were used to localize a cell surface chondroitin-sulfate proteoglycan antigen, termed NG2, in the developing and adult rat cerebellum. In the adult, both polyclonal and monoclonal anti-NG2 antibodies labeled cells throughout the cerebellar cortex, with the labeled cells being especially prominent in the… (More)
