A monoclonal antibody against the slow isoform of chicken skeletal muscle Ca2+-ATPase recognises, in nervous tissue, analogous membrane proteins which are most concentrated in the microsomal fraction. Histochemically, the immunoreactivity of the antibody is restricted to neurones where the staining is most intense in cell bodies and dendrites, weak in axons and absent from cell nuclei. The expression of the antigen varies greatly between different neuronal populations and is developmentally regulated. The antigen is also axonally transported.
