Nerve growth factor (beta NGF) is a protein supporting sympathetic and sensory innervation in the peripheral tissues as well as cholinergic innervation in the brain. A DNA probe derived from a genomic clone coding for chicken NGF was used to study NGF mRNA levels during development. NGF mRNA was detected in the chicken embryo as early as day 3.5 of incubation. The level of NGF mRNA in total embryo increased four-fold until day 8, remained high until day 12, and subsequently decreased. No… CONTINUE READING
