• dorsal root ga
  • The cell bodies of sensory afferent pseudounipolar neurons are located in dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) along the vertebral column. (bio-protocol.org)
  • In a previous work we have shown that culturing adult rat dorsal root ganglia neurons modifies their neurotransmitter phenotype in such a way that cultured neurons synthesize transmitters that are not found in situ, while several other transmitters are expressed in a much higher percentage of neurons in culture than in situ [Schoenen J. et al. (ac.be)
  • In conclusion, neurotransmitter gene expression of adult dorsal root ganglia neurons is controlled by complex influences. (ac.be)
  • sensory neurons
  • We here provide a detailed protocol for the isolation and culture of primary mouse sensory neurons. (bio-protocol.org)
  • 3) growth factors such as ciliary neuronotrophic factor or basic fibroblast growth factor but not nerve growth factor repress 5-hydroxytryptamine and calcitonin gene-related peptide immunoreactivity in cultured sensory neurons. (ac.be)
