Transforming growth factor-beta inhibits apoptosis induced by beta-amyloid peptide fragment 25-35 in cultured neuronal cells.


Previously, we demonstrated that transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) pretreatment protects neuroblastoma cell lines, human hNT neurons, and primary rat embryo hippocampal neurons (REHIPs) from degeneration caused by incubation with beta-amyloid peptide (Abeta). Here we present evidence suggesting that TGF-beta interferes with an apoptotic pathway… (More)
