Suggest you include a number of anitbodies made against the neuronal 
growth associated protein GAP-43.  Versions have been made that 
identify the phospho, de-phospho, and either form of the protein.  
Boehringer Mannheim currently sells some of them and I think the 
original clones came from work done by Pate Skene.  Larry Benowitz 
also has done a lot of work developing antibodies against this 
protein as well.  Definitely be interested in receiving a copy of 
your list when you get it compiled.  Good luck in your endeavor!
