Abstract: The middle three-fifths of the forebrains of 14-day-old embryos were obtained and transplanted into the cortical cavities of adult rats made 7 days prior to the transplantation. The expression of proteins, as revealed by 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis studies, and the activities of energy metabolizing enzymes in the mature allografts were compared with those in the 14-day-old embryonic forebrains and corresponding areas in the contralateral cerebral hemispheres of the hosts. They were shown to approach adult pattern and adult values after 10-12 weeks of growth. The biochemical findings were discussed and correlated with some of the anatomical observations.
