The expression of neurotrophin and neurotrophin receptor mRNAs was examined using RNase protection assays and Northern-blot analysis in rat thymus, spleen tissue and immunocompetent mononuclear cells purified from these two organs. Nerve growth factor, brain-derived neurotrophic factor, neurotrophin-3 and neurotrophin-4 mRNAs were all expressed in thymus and spleen tissue although at different levels, while immunocompetent cells expressed neurotrophin-3 and neurotrophin-4 mRNAs. Thymus and… CONTINUE READING
