Neuregulins play a major role in the formation and stabilization of neuromuscular junctions, and are produced by both motor neurons and muscle. Although the effects and mechanism of neuregulins on skeletal muscle (e.g. regulation of acetylcholine receptor expression) have been studied extensively, the effects of neuregulins on motor neurons remain unknown. We report that neuregulin-1beta (NRGbeta1) inhibited apoptosis of rat motor neurons for up to 7 days in culture by a phosphatidylinositol 3… CONTINUE READING
