Neural growth factor

 

Neural growth factors (NGF). This is the only embryonic growth factor that does not aid mitosis and is therefore not a mitogenic. They are found in neural tissue and they probably aid the metabolism and non multiplicating growth of neural tissues. They are therefore non-mitogenic but they maintain the survival of certain populations of neurons and are chemotactic in property aiding regeneration of tissues. They also regulate the expression of catecolamine biosynthetic enzymes such as tyrosine hydroxylase, somatostatin and substance P.
