The distribution of a neurectoderm-associated carbohydrate antigen (termed D1.1) in tissues of the developing and adult rat was determined using indirect immunofluorescent techniques. The antigen was detected as early as embryonic days 8 and 9 when it was localized to cells within the developing neural plate and neural tube. As the central nervous system (CNS) developed, the anti-D1.1 antibody labeled neuroepithelial cells but not terminally differentiated neurons or glial cells. In addition… CONTINUE READING
