Comparative analysis of brain neurite-stimulating protein and nerve growth factor using a culture of chick embryo sensory neurons

Abstract

A study was made of brain neurite-stimulating proteins separated from lysosomal fractions of mammalian brain tissue. This protein stimulates axonal growth in sensory neurons in organotypic spinal ganglia culture. The physicochemical properties of neurite-stimulating protein differs from nerve growth factor — the familiar neurotrophic factor. Findings showed… (More)
