The response of growth cones from embryonic chick dorsal root ganglia to a patterned substrate of adsorbed nerve growth factor (NGF) was studied. The patterned substrate presented growth cones with an adsorbed NGF pattern and NGF-free substrate. NGF-responsive growth cones from 7 and 9 day ganglia could not proceed onto NGF-free substrate, reproducing the… CONTINUE READING
