Decreased IGF-I gene expression during the apoptosis of Purkinje cells in pcd mice.


Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) plays a potential functional role in cerebellar development in the rat, as indicated by its spatio-temporally coordinated expression with the IGF-I receptor (IGFR-I), IGF binding protein (IGFBP) 2 and 5 during the postnatal critical growth period. Although IGF-I promotes the survival of cultured cerebellar neurons, its… (More)
