Expression of functional nerve growth factor receptors in pancreatic beta-cell lines and fetal rat islets in primary culture.


Previous data demonstrated that one rat insulinoma cell line, RINm5F cells, which is a rat beta-cell line derived from a pancreatic tumor, express mRNA coding for both the low- and the high-affinity nerve growth factor receptors. Goals of this study were to extend our data to other beta-cell lines and fetal islets in primary culture and to study further the… (More)
