Neurite outgrowth is elicited from whole explants or dissociated neurons of 8--10-day-old chick embryo sensory, dorsal root ganglia when cultured in the presence of a high speed supernatant fraction (105,000 g) from homogenates of chick or rat heart, liver or brain. The neurite promoting activity is not identical to mouse nerve growth factor (NGF) and is non-dialyzable. Expression of this neurogenic factor would appear to be developmentally regulated as its activity is barely detectable in… CONTINUE READING
