Target-dependent cell death of different sub-populations of sensory neurons may be regulated by different trophic factors. To investigate this possibility, we have taken advantage of the fact that the fractions of muscle sensory and cutaneous sensory neurons in chicken dorsal root ganglia (DRG) are probably different at different segmental levels, and we have compared the responses of chicken DRG from levels that do and do not innervate limb tissue to various growth factors in vitro.
