The NGF-family of neurotrophic factors are structurally similar peptides with related functional properties. So far, this family of neurotrophic factors has only been identified in the vertebrate nervous system. We have determined that cultured Drosophila embryonic cells produce and secrete into medium, an activity which stimulates neurite outgrowth of(More)
Primary cultures ofDrosophila gastrula stage embryonic cells will divide and terminally differentiate into morphologically recognizable neurons and muscles. The phenotypically mixed nature of this primary culture system has made it difficult to effectively analyze various parameters of cell growth and differentiation for individual cell types. We report(More)
