We have examined the trophic effects of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), truncated insulin-like growth factor-1 (tIGF), and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) on embryonic striatal neurons grown under serum-free culture conditions. Striatal neurons were identified using immunocytochemistry for dopamine-...
The ability of PC12 cells to regenerate processes is substantially enhanced in vitro if they have been previously exposed to nerve growth factor (NGF-primed), compared to cells that have not been exposed (NGF-naive). These studies were carried out to determine if the enhanced neuritogenic ability...
