Regulation of neurotransmitter expression by a membrane-derived factor.


Cell-cell contact appears to play a critical role in the expression of transmitter traits in developing neurons. We have previously shown that cell membrane contact induces the de novo appearance of choline acetyltransferase (CAT) in virtually pure cultures of dissociated sympathetic neurons. A membrane-associated CAT-inducing factor has been extracted and… (More)
