Targeting Talk: Retrograde Transport

  • I’m interested in using SAP to eliminate cells through retrograde transport, like OX7-SAP and IB4-SAP have been used. Can you explain how retrograde transport works and if it is possible for this to work with dermorphin-SAP? What determines whether a targeted toxin will be able to be used in retrograde transport?
  • If a targeted toxin cannot be used in retrograde transport, will it only kill cell bodies in the injection site or will it also kill terminals?
