NGF has been shown to support neuron survival by activating the transcription factor nuclear factor -␬ B (NF ␬ B). We investigated the effect of NGF on the expression of Bcl-xL, an anti–apoptotic Bcl-2 family protein.

We have previously shown that nerve growth factor (NGF)-induced activation of nuclear factor-kappaB increased neuronal expression of Bcl-xL, an anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 family protein. In the present study we determined the role of the p75 neurotrophin receptor in constitutive and NGF-induced survival signalling. Treatment of rat pheochromocytoma (PC12) cells(More)
