    Abstract

    Abstract– Levels of 7S nerve growth factor in various tissues of the Golden Hamster were measured using a new assay procedure. The assay consisted of labelling native 7S nerve growth factor by allowing an 125I‐labelled subunit ([125I]‐α) of 7S nerve growth factor to compete with the native a subunit. The presence of 7S nerve growth factor was noted in a wide variety of non‐neuronal and neuronal tissues. Levels of 7S nerve growth factor in the CNS decreased as the distance from the metencephalon increased both rostrally and caudally.
