GAPs and fodrin. Novel axonally transported proteins


Journal Article

The GAPs (growth associated proteins, axonally transported at elevated levels during periods of axon elongation) and fodrin (polypeptides associated with the outer cytoplasm of neurons and other cells) are novel, rapidly axonally transported proteins. The behavior of the GAPS suggests that the modulation of neuronal gene expression is a critical feature in regulating axon growth during development and regeneration. The properties of fodrin raise the possibility of a relationship between the process of axonal transport and other intracellular transport phenomena. © 1981.
