Nerve growth factor increases electrical activity of neural cells derived from murine bone marrow stromal cells.

OBJECTIVE: Nerve growth factor (NGF) triggers long-term neuronal excitability. We examined its effect on murine bone marrow stromal cells (BMSC)-derived neurons.

METHODS: With an optimal differentiation protocol, BMSCs were differentiated into neurons in culture. To confirm the probability of differentiation of B.....
