The importance of trophic agents for the development and maintenance of neurons and their presence in mesenchyme-derived neuronal target organs such as muscle is well exemplified by the protein nerve growth factor (NGF) and its synthesis in target areas of sympathetic and sensory nerves. Stringent conceptualization of target organ-regulated neuronal maintenance would imply that neurons were able to provide trophic support to their presynaptic counterparts. We present data suggesting that basic… CONTINUE READING
