Enhancement of the nerve growth factor-mediated neurite outgrowth from PC12D cells by Chinese and Paraguayan medicinal plants



Enhancement of the nerve growth factor-mediated neurite outgrowth from PC12D cells by Chinese and Paraguayan medicinal plants



Biological & Pharmaceutical Bulletin 22(7): 752-755



Methanol extracts and fractions of 7 Chinese and 10 Paraguayan medicinal plants were examined for their effects on nerve growth factor (NGF)-mediated neurite outgrowth from PC12D cells to evaluate their NGF-potentiating activities. Methanol extracts of Gymmopteris rufa, Ruta graveolens and Picrorhiza scrophulariiflora markedly increased the proportion of neurite-bearing cells.
