We examined the potential neurotrophic effects of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 on the survival and differentiation of neurons cultured from the rat developing striatum at embryonic day 16, a period during which the mRNAs for BMP-2 and its receptor subunits (types IA, IB, and II) were detected. BMP-2 exerted potent activity to promote the survival of(More)
Application of mechanical stretch to cultured adult rat muscle satellite cells results in release of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and accelerated entry into the cell cycle. Stretch activation of cultured rat muscle satellite cells was observed only when medium pH was between 7.1 and 7.5, even though activation of satellite cells was accelerated by(More)
