Description

Methylamine-modified alpha-2-macroglobulin (MA-alpha 2M) has been recently shown to inhibit the biological activity of beta-nerve growth factor (NGF) in promoting neurite outgrowth by embryonic dorsal root ganglia in culture (Koo PH, Liebl DJ, J Neurosci Res 31:678-692, 1992). The objectives of this study are to determine whether alpha 2M can also be modified by larger aromatic biogenic amines such as
