Neuregulins (NRGs) are growth factors present in neurons and glial cells of the central and peripheral nervous systems and play a role in the survival, proliferation, and differentiation of these cells. We now report the localization of the two major isoforms of NRG (alpha and beta) and their receptors (erbB) in cultured Schwann cells and oligodendrocytes(More)
The cellular localization of calpain is important in understanding the roles that calpain may play in physiological function. We, therefore, examined calpain expression, activity, and immunofluorescent localization in primary cultures of rat oligodendrocytes. The mRNA expression of m-calpain was 64.8% (P = 0.0033) and 50.5% (P = 0.0254) higher than that of(More)
