Transforming Growth Factor : A Promoter of Motoneuron Survival of Potential Biological Relevance


Expression of transforming growth factor (TGF ), a member of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) family, is a general response of adult murine motoneurons to genetic and experimental lesions, TGF appearing as an inducer of astrogliosis in these situations. Here we address the possibility that TGF expression is not specific to pathological situations but may… (More)
