Abstract

The level of the nerve growth factor protein, NGF, in vivo has a profound influence on axonal sprouting by sensory neurons of vertebrate dorsal root ganglia. There is evidence also that NGF may play similar roles in cholinergic central structures in brain. In both instances, retrograde transport of NGF has been demonstrated. Here we examined uptake of NGF by DRG neurons in response to contusion injury of the spinal cord. Under these conditions there was uptake and transport of NGF into large DRG neurons via central processes but no uptake by non-DRG central neurons. Thus, any effect of NGF on spinal neurons or their processes would be secondary to the direct effects of NGF on DRG neurons.
