The DSD-1 carbohydrate epitope depends on sulfation, correlates with chondroitin sulfate D motifs, and is sufficient to promote neurite outgrowth.


The neural chondroitin sulfate (CS) proteoglycan (PG) DSD-1-PG was originally identified with the monoclonal antibody (mAb) 473HD. It promotes neurite outgrowth of hippocampal neurons when coated as a substrate in the presence of polycations. This effect is inhibited by mAb 473HD that specifically recognizes the DSD-1 epitope. The DSD-1 epitope is also… (More)
