New Molecular Insights on the Development of the Peripheral Nervous System
In the study of cell differentiation, a necessary step is to determine the onset of specific gene activities, in the various cell types emerging during embryogenesis. Production of monoclonal antibodies (Mab) able to distinguish specific antigenic determinants carried by differentiated cells, constitutes a mean to fulfill such a goal.
