Neuro-2a neuroblastoma cells form neurites in the presence of taxol and cytochalasin D.

Abstract

We have examined the role of microtubules and microfilaments in neurite outgrowth by chemically modifying their interaction in Neuro-2a neuroblastoma cells. Cells exposed to taxol (1 microM), an agent that promotes microtubule polymerization and stabilization, did not form neurites over a 24 h period. Similarly, cells exposed to cytochalasin D (4 microM… (More)
