The effects of aluminum and other metal ions on the synthesis of nerve growth factor (NGF) by cultured mouse brain astroglial cells have been investigated. Natural NGF formation was dependent on the AlCl3 concentration of the cell culture medium; it was stimulated at low concentrations but was inhibited at higher concentrations. Catechol-stimulated NGF… CONTINUE READING
