Uptake and transepithelial transport of nerve growth factor in suckling rat ileum


Nerve growth factor (NGF) is necessary for the development of sympathetic and some sensory neurons. Milk may be a source of NGF for suckling young, but sites of intestinal absorption of the protein have not been identified. To determine whether NGF is transported across the absorptive epithelium of suckling rat ileum, we assessed binding, uptake, and… (More)
