F3/contactin is a cell adhesion/recognition molecule of the immunoglobulin superfamily implicated in axonal growth. We examined its subcellular distribution and mobilization to the cell surface in oxytocin- (OT-) secreting neurons, which express it throughout life and the axons of which undergo activity-dependent remodelling. This was performed in hypothalamic organotypic slice cultures containing OT neurons with properties of adult neurosecretory cells. Immunocytochemistry and immunoblot… CONTINUE READING
