Letter from Peter Sonderegger to Marshall W. Nirenberg
Sonderegger, from the Institute of Biochemistry at the University of Zurich in Switzerland, thanks Nirenberg for cell lines
and provides him with an updated summary of his results from antibody staining techniques.
I just got your A2B5-conditioned medium and thank you very much. Phil asked me in a recent letter about the antibody staining
results I obtained with your antibodies. I have done only one experiment. A copy of my records is included. After this,
Marie Neale did a few more experiments, the records of which should be in her hands. As a summary of the positive results
14H3: Stained cell body on large DRG. Many DRG neurons negativ. Questionable? Staining of subclass?
16G6: DRG cell bodies and fine processes. Processes intenser than cell bodies.
18B8: DRG cell somas and axons. Stains subpopulation.
Spinal Cord cell bodies and axons. Intense dots on axons: boutons?
97C4: Stains extracellular matrix of DRG culture.
A2-B5: DRG cell bodies and axons. Non-neuronal cells.
94C2: Staining of certain flat background cells.
These are all the data I have. If I can be of any further help, please let me know.
