The choice of which transmitter will be expressed by a neuron is influenced by diffusible differentiating factors produced by a variety of nonneuronal cells. In this study we show that human, bovine, and rat brains contain a soluble heparin-binding factor that stimulates cholinergic and peptidergic expression. We also show that neuronal contact with other… CONTINUE READING
