Neurofibromatosis tumor and skin cells in culture. II. Structural proteins with special reference to the cytoskeletal and cell surface components.


Structural proteins of cultured neurofibromatosis (NF) tumor and skin cells were studied with reference to control skin fibroblasts. In polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE)/fluorography the banding patterns of the cell lysates were markedly similar. NF tumor cells, however, produced a 60 kD band with a stronger and a 48 kD band with a lighter protein… (More)
