Expression and androgen regulation of the ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor (CNTFRalpha) in muscles and spinal cord.

Abstract

We have previously observed that ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) can prevent the degeneration of androgen-sensitive perineal motoneurons and their target muscles, the bulbocavernosus and levator ani (BC/LA), in perinatal female rats. Response to CNTF is dependent on the expression of the alpha component of the CNTF receptor (CNTFRalpha). In the present… (More)
