  • For each preparation, sciatic nerve RNA was probed for CNTF and GAPDH mRNAs as described in Materials and Methods. Band intensities obtained by densitometric scanning of autoradiograms were used to compare CNTF and GAPDH signals in normal and Tr-Jnerves. The consistently higher GAPDH signals in Tr-J nerves reflect the increased amounts of RNA obtained from these nerves (see Fig. 4B).
