Neurotrophins have specificity toward distinct subpopulations of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons with different neurotrophin receptors. It has been suggested that neurotrophins also play important roles in mature DRG neurons after injury. In the present study, we examined the expression of nerve growth factor (NGF), brain-derived neurotrophic factor… CONTINUE READING
