NGF receptor reexpression and NGF-mediated cholinergic neuronal hypertrophy in the damaged adult neostriatum.

Adult cholinergic interneurons of the neostriatum are not immunoreactive for monoclonal antibody to NGF receptor, whereas the developing neostriatum is immunoreactive for this same antibody. Chronic NGF infusion into the adult neostriatum resulted in reexpression of the NGF receptor such that many cholinergic interneurons became immunoreactive for NGF… CONTINUE READING
