Neurturin (NTN) is an important neurotrophic factor for parasympathetic neurons; however, no studies to date have investigated the signalling mechanisms downstream of GFRalpha2 and Ret activation underlying this neurotrophic support. This is particularly important for pelvic parasympathetic neurons, which are prone to injury during surgical procedures such as prostatectomy, and where there are no current therapies for axonal regeneration. To address this issue we have cultured dissociated adult… CONTINUE READING
