Dissociated amygdala cells from 17-day-old mouse fetuses were cultivated in a flask for 7 days to form aggregates. In the aggregates there developed typical synaptic structures and [125I]alpha-bungarotoxin binding capacity. An addition of estradiol (100 ng/ml) in the culture medium caused a significant increase in the toxin binding capacity. From these… CONTINUE READING
