Example text

Twenty-seven days later, we took samples of transplant tissue, host brain tissue immediately adjacent to the transplant or to the lesion itself, and samples of host brain tissue in the homologous area of the contralateral, intact cortex. The samples of brain tissue were then subjected to immunoelectrophoresis in order to assay for amounts of NCAM and D3 protein at the sites we selected. STEIN Our results were statistically significant and bear mentioning here. First of all, the lesion itself resulted in a clear decrease in NCAM and D3 protein in brain tissue adjacent to the injury, however, the animals with transplants had higher levels of NCAM in tissue near the damaged site.
