Secretion of a nerve growth factor by primary chick fibroblast cultures.

Normal primary chick embryo fibroblast cultures product a nerve growth-promoting factor which cross-reacts with monospecfic antibody to pure male mouse submaxillary gland nerve growth factor (NGF). When taken together with the earlier demonstration that mouse L2 CELLS AND 3T3 cells also produce an NGF-like protein, these findings suggest that secretion of this factor may be a general property of fibroblast.[1]
