CNTF cDNA encodes the ciliary neurotrophic factor (sequence from human genome, NM_000614.3/CCDS 31554.1, 603 pb). This neurotrophic factor may be used to promote neuronal survival in experimental gene therapy assays.
Examples of Applications
- Use in vitro, in vivo to study oxidative stress mechanisms
- Use in vitro or in vivo to study nervous system
- Use in vitro or in vivo to study neurodegenerescence pathways and develop experimental therapy for neurodegenerative diseases
