Rat sciatic nerve schwann cell microcultures: Responses to mitogens and production of trophic and neurite-promoting factors


During embryonic development and in response to injury, the growing axons of peripheral neurons may influence the migration and proliferation of Schwann cells which, in return, may present neurons with a critical supply of factors required for neuronal survival, growth and differentiation. The identification and characterization of agents influencing the… (More)
