A macromolecular fraction of conditioned culture medium (CM) derived from explant cocultures of embryonic rat posterior cortex and caudal thalamus is able to support the survival of neurons in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN) of newborn rats following ablation of dLGN cortical target areas. In the present study we tested whether the survival-promoting activity of this target-derived neurotrophic agent was concentration dependent and whether different subpopulations of dLGN neurons… CONTINUE READING
