A rapid and simple procedure is presented to obtain nearly pure populations of human neuron-like cells from the SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cell line. Sequential exposure of SH-SY5Y cells to retinoic acid(More)
Retinoic acid (RA) induces the differentiation of many cell lines, including those derived from neuroblastoma. RA treatment of SH-SY5Y cells induces the appearance of functional Trk B and Trk C(More)
The members of the glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) family of neurotrophic factors (GDNF, neurturin, persephin, and artemin) are able to promote in vivo and in vitro survival of(More)
The glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) family ligands (GFLs), consisting of GDNF, neurturin, persephin, and artemin, signal via a multicomponent complex composed of Ret tyrosine(More)
Nerve growth factor (NGF) induces survival and differentiation of the neural crest-derived PC12 cell line. Caveolae are cholesterol-enriched, caveolin-containing plasma membrane microdomains involved(More)
