Spinal cord neuroblasts proliferate in response to basic fibroblast growth factor.

Abstract

Trophic factors may function as one of the epigenic signals responsible for the proliferation, growth, migration, and differentiation of neurons and glia during embryogenesis. The present study reports that basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) at high concentrations (10-100 ng/ml) is a mitogen for embryonic spinal cord cells that have already committed to… (More)
