Abstract

Radioactively labeled, fast-transported proteins were collected at ligatures placed on peripheral and central branches of spinal sensory nerves of the bullfrog. In agreement with previous studies, we found that the same species of proteins were transported down each branch. For each protein species analyzed we have measured the amount of radioactivity reaching each ligature, and calculated the ratio of radioactivity reaching the peripheral ligature to that reaching the central ligature. Not all protein species have the same ratio. This suggests that there may be differential transport of fast-transported proteins in axonal branches.
