Trophic effect of erythropoietin and other hematopoietic factors on central cholinergic neurons in vitro and in vivo.

In vitro granulocyte colony-stimulating factor ( G-CSF), macrophage colony-stimulating factor ( M-CSF), erythropoietin ( EPO), and erythroid differentiation factor (EDF) augmented choline acetyltransferase ( ChAT) activity in mouse embryonic primary septal neurons and in cholinergic hybridoma cell line, SN6.10.2. 2. This is similar to the effects seen with interleukin-3 ( IL-3) or granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor ( GM-CSF). Moreover, in vivo GM-CSF and EPO promoted survival of septal cholinergic neurons in adult rats which had undergone fimbria-fornix transections. These results suggest that some of the hematopoietic factors act on cholinergic neurons as 'neurotrophic factors' to influence the differentiation, maintenance and regeneration of these neurons.[1]
