Abstract

An antibody specific for the predicted carboxyterminal sequence of the human brain isozyme of glycogen phosphorylase (α-1,4-d-glucan: orthophosphate d-glyucosyltransferase, EC 2.4.1.1) was generated to verify the carboxyterminal amino acid sequence of this protein. The isozyme-specific antibody was used to examine the localization of this protein in primate and non-primate brain. The highest levels of the brain isozyme in cerebrum and cerebellum were found in fibrous astrocytes, many with glial processes that appear to terminate upon blood vessels.
