TLDR
It is demonstrated that specific combinations of neurotrophic factors are required to influence the neuronal progenitor cells to become postmitotic mature CNS neurons, and synergistic interactions may play an important role in modulating the differentiation of a wide assortment of neuronal precursors in the developing nervous system.
Neuropoietin, a new IL-6-related cytokine signaling through the ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor.
A structural profile-based computational screen was used to identify neuropoietin (NP), a new cytokine. The np gene is localized in tandem with the cardiotrophin-1 gene on mouse chromosome 7. NP
Neurotrophic Factors and Their Receptors
TLDR
These two distinct classes of neurotrophic factors, utilizing distinct signaling pathways, can interact to effect the growth and differentiation of neuronal progenitors during neuropoiesis in a way analogous to that exhibited by the cytokines during hematopoiesis.
Cytokine receptors on glial cells
TLDR
The function of the receptors for cytokines and families of differentiation/survival/growth factors as they operate on astrocytes, microglia, and oligodendrocyte in development, health, and disease is reviewed.
STAT proteins participate in the regulation of the vasoactive intestinal peptide gene by the ciliary neurotrophic factor family of cytokines.
TLDR
Activation of STAT transcription factors contributes to the induction of the VIp gene by the CNTF family of cytokines and may be involved in cytokine-mediated differentiation of sympathetic neurons.
Activating mechanism of CNTF and related cytokines
TLDR
Structural-function analysis showed that the gp130-interactive proteins bind in a similar manner to that of growth hormone, and there should be other pathways and some crosstalk between them to enhance, prolong, or specify the signals.
Activins as candidate cholinergic differentiation factors in vivo
3 CNTF and Related Neurokines
TLDR
This chapter will highlight the actions of the neurokines and the current state of the understanding of the signaling pathway, with emphasis on activation and inactivation processes, and discuss some potential roles in neurodegenerative diseases and their treatment.

TLDR
Investigations of the evolution of cytokines will help to decipher the complex cellular, humoral and molecular interactions that regulate host defenses and studies of the invertebrates will shed light on the phylogenetic emergence of these molecules.
Molecular cloning, expression and regional distribution of rat ciliary neurotrophic factor
TLDR
The complementary DNA-deduced amino-acid sequence and subsequent expression of cDNA clones covering the entire coding region in HeLa-cells indicate that CNTF is a cytosolic protein, and shows thatCNTF is not a target-derived neurotrophic factor.

TLDR
This work proposes that the approximately 200-residue binding segment of the canonical cytokine receptor is composed of two discrete folding domains that share a significant sequence and structural resemblance with a likely binding site for cytokine ligands.
The cholinergic neuronal differentiation factor from heart cells is identical to leukemia inhibitory factor.
TLDR
Structural analysis and biological assays demonstrated that this protein is identical to a protein that regulates the growth and differentiation of embryonic stem cells and myeloid cells, and that stimulates bone remodeling and acute-phase protein synthesis in hepatocytes.
Generation of neuronal diversity: analogies and homologies with hematopoiesis.
TLDR
The immense variety of neuronal phenotypes in the vertebrate nervous system is apparent in considering just the process of chemical transmission, and individual neurons simultaneously synthesize, store, and secrete one or more classical transmitters in addition to three or more neuropeptides.
