EGF enhances the survival of dopamine neurons in rat embryonic mesencephalon primary cell culture.


Epidermal growth factor (EGF) immunoreactive material has been demonstrated to be present in the basal ganglia. In this study, we investigated the effect of EGF on cells cultured from 16-day embryonic rat mesencephalon, which included dopamine neurons that project to the striatum in vivo. EGF receptors were detected in untreated cultures by [125I]-EGF… (More)
