The development of the nervous system appears to be under the control of multiple growth factors, neurotrophins and cytokines, which may be expressed either continuously or transiently throughout defined stages of cellular generation, proliferation or differentiation. Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) cytokines and their receptors are abundantly expressed in the embryonic nervous system but their localization at autonomic levels in the fetal spinal cord has not yet been detailed. Immunoreactivity… CONTINUE READING
