Neuronal depolarization and culture media conditioned by certain nonneuronal cells (CM) are known to exert opposite effects on the expression of cholinergic and noradrenergic traits in cultured rat sympathetic neurons. We have compared their effects on the developments of choline acetyltransferase (CAT), tyrosine hydroxylase (TOH), dopa decarboxylase (AADC)(More)
GDP-D-mannose epimerase (GME, EC 5.1.3.18) converts GDP-D-mannose to GDP-L-galactose, and is considered to be a central enzyme connecting the major ascorbate biosynthesis pathway to primary cell wall metabolism in higher plants. Our previous work demonstrated that GME is crucial for both ascorbate and cell wall biosynthesis in tomato. The aim of the present(More)
Rat skeletal muscle cells release in culture a macromolecule which stimulates by 25-100 fold the development of choline acetyltransferase (CAT) in cultures of new-born rat sympathetic neurons. This "cholinergic factor" impaired the development of three norepinephrine synthesizing enzymes and of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in these cultures. The 16S form of(More)
