Question: 217 m nerve growth factor ngf is from the neurotrophin...

Question details


2.17 (M) Nerve growth factor (NGF) is from the neurotrophin family of proteins that has been shown to have trophic effects on some cholinergic systems of the brain. Since it helps prevent neurons from dying, work has been done to see if NGF is viable as a therapeutic agent in the treatment of Alzheimers disease or other neurodegenerative disorders. One possible treatment involves fabricat polymers into porous implants loaded with NGF powder and surgically placing them within the brain. Consider a model to track implanted NGF in the brain.
