Transient IGF-I gene expression during the maturation of functionally related central projection neurons.


Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) is a monomeric peptide with significant homology to proinsulin. IGF-I has a number of potent effects on cultured neural tissue, including the stimulation of mitosis in sympathetic neuroblasts; the promotion of neurite outgrowth in cortical, sensory, and sympathetic neurons; and the induction of oligodendrocyte… (More)
