Relatively little is known about the proteins of nervous tissues, especially in regard to the human central nervous system. No preferred method of extraction has been developed and no accepted classification of CNS proteins exists. Nevertheless, some progress has been made in this field, largely because of improvements in investigative techniques such as electrophoresis and column separation.
