Neurturin (NTN) is a recently discovered neurotrophic factor related to glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and has a wide spectrum of biological roles in different types of neurons in the central and peripheral nervous systems. However, information on its expression in peripheral tissues has been limited, and there is no information on its peptide distribution. As a step to examine its role and action mechanisms in neuronal and non-neuronal cells in the periphery, the present… CONTINUE READING
