Induction of neurite formation in PC12 cells by microinjection of proto-oncogenic Ha-ras protein preincubated with guanosine-5'-O-(3-thiotriphosphate).

Rat pheochromocytoma (PC12) cells differentiate to neuronal cells in response to nerve growth factor. It has been shown that microinjection of oncogenic but not proto-oncogenic p21 protein induces morphological differentiation in PC12 cells (D. Bar-Sagi and J. R. Feramisco, Cell 42:841-848, 1985). In this paper we describe a recombinant human proto… CONTINUE READING
