The localization of acidic fibroblast growth factor (aFGF) in the male mouse brain was studied with biochemical and immunocytochemical techniques. Using two peptide-based aFGF antisera directed against independent epitopes, Western gel analysis of dissected brain demonstrated significant levels of aFGF immunoreactivity in the pons-medulla, hypothalamus and cerebellum. The cortex contained much less immunoreactivity. Consistent with the biochemical data, immunocytochemical analysis with the same… CONTINUE READING
