The presence of a novel member of serine proteinase inhibitor, B-43, was immunohistochemically indicated in both neurons and astrocytes in the parietal region of the bovine brain. B-43-like immunoreactivity was detected in pyramidal cells in the cortex and GFAP-positive astroglial cells in the white matter. The processes of B-43-like immunoreactive astrocytes were observed to extend to the vascular wall, forming the endfeet-like structures. B-43 may play a cooperative role with glia-derived nexin/protease nexin-1 and antichymotrypsin in the brain.
