Studies on the expression of adipocyte-specific cell surface antigens during the differentiation of adipocyte precursor cells in vitro.

Using species and cell specific antiadipocyte sera an immunoprecipitation procedure was developed which allowed the nature of adipocyte cell surface antigens to be investigated. Analysis of immunoprecipitates from mature adipocyte plasma membranes of rat, ox and chicken and similar 125I-labelled membranes revealed the presence of specific externally… CONTINUE READING
