The Biosynthesis of Proteins within Axons and Synaptosomes

Abstract

The ability of the axon to synthesize protein has been demonstrated indirectly in a number of ways(1–3) and more directly in vitro in Mauthner axons of the goldfish,(4) isolated synaptosomes,(5–7) and giant axons of the squid.(8) Protein synthesis in axons has aroused considerable interest because no demonstrable ribosomes have been found in axons(9) and because, although much of the axonal protein is supplied from the cell body by axoplasmic flow, some axonal proteins, perhaps membranous proteins, can be synthesized in situ.
