Neurotrophins are growth factors acting on responsive cells through membrane receptors identified as Trk tyrosine kinase proteins (A, B and C). Trks are present in the mammalian lymphoid organs, and indirect evidence suggests that they are also present in the avian bursa of Fabricius. This study was designed to analyze (a) the occurrence and localization of Trk proteins in the bursa of Fabricius; and (b) whether the post-hatching growth of the organ (from hatching to 75 days) involves cells… CONTINUE READING
