Muller glia factors induce survival and neuritogenesis of peripheral and central neurons.

Abstract:

We have examined the trophic effects of conditioned media obtained from purified murine Müller glia cells on chick purified sympathetic or dorsal root ganglia (DRG) neurons and on Retinal Ganglion Cells (RGC) from postnatal mice. Purified murine Müller glia cultures stained positively for vimentin, GFAP or S-100, but were negative for neuronal markers. Murine Müller glial conditioned medium (MMG) was concentrated and at 1:1 dilution supported 100% survival of chick or rat sympathetic neurons ...
