Neurotrophins play important roles in the survival, differentiation, and maintenance of CNS neurons. To begin to investigate specific roles for these factors in the mammalian visual system, we have examined the cellular localization of the neurotrophin receptor trkB within the developing cerebral cortex and thalamus of the ferret using extracellular domain-specific antibodies. At prenatal ages (gestation is 41 d), trkB-immunostained fibers were observed in the internal capsule and as two… CONTINUE READING
