Abstract

H-o. Tamura, M. Noto, K. Kinoshita, S. Ohkuma and H. Ikezawa. Inhibition of NGF-induced neurite outgrowth of PC12 cells by Bacillus cereus sphingomyelinase, a bacterial hemolysin. Toxicon 32, 629-633, 1994.-Sphingomyelinase of Bacillus cereus, a bacterial hemolysin, reduced nerve growth factor (NGF)-induced neurite outgrowth of PC12 cells in a dose-dependent manner. At 200 mU/ml, sphingomyelinase repressed half the neurite outgrowth of the cells at 250 ng/ml NGF. The c-fos superinduction, one of the early responses induced by NGF, was not influenced by this treatment, suggesting that the repression by sphingomyelinase occurred via a protein kinase C-independent pathway.
