Abstract

NGF's role in neuronal survival has tended to mask other potential functions. But now the generation of mice lacking both Bax - required for the death of NGF-deprived neurons - and NGF or its receptor has shown that NGF plays a key role in establishing cutaneous innervation and regulating neuropeptide expression.
