IgG was deposited at the nodal or internodal axolemma in the spinal anterior roots.
We were unable to accomplish this by external application of the antibody, even with Triton-X-100, because of barriers outside the axolemma - particularly the basement membrane and the glial cell layer (5).
Glia, for example, can transfer hsp across the axolemma (4); spermatozoa are provided with hsp70 from the seminal fluid that remains associated with the outer membrane (5); and exogenous application of hsp70 can have such profound effects as protecting the retina from light damage (6) and influencing neuronal survival after axotomy (7).
