A brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) related system is involved in the maintenance of the polyinnervate Torpedo electric organ.

Abstract

Target-derived molecules are essential for the maintenance of neuron survival. In the present work, we introduce the electric organ of Torpedo marmorata as a tool for the study of trophic interactions in a polyinervate system. This electric organ maintains a large number of cholinergic terminals on the postsynaptic cell surface. We have observed that a… (More)
