Abstract

Abstract Some neurons and surrounding satellite cells in human dorsal root ganglia were immunostained with rabbit IgM antibody against the ganglioside fucosyl GM1. They were not immunostained with the anti-GM1 antiserum. Immunohistochemical discrimination of neurons in human dorsal root ganglia by the anti-fucosyl GM1 antibody may give as an important clue to the functional identification of neurons conveying different modalities of sensation.
