The Retinoblastoma Protein Is Essential for Survival of Postmitotic Neurons

Andrusiak et al [1] have recently made the observation that Rb is required for continued cell growth and survival in terminally differentiated neurons. There is mounting evidence from myriad sources that abnormal cell cycle signals can play a part in neuronal death [2, 3]. It has been difficult to elucidate the the role of Rb in context of neuronal cell death. Andrusiak et al used a murine Rb knockout mouse model to study the effects of Rb in vivo and in vitro. Their observations are published in the most recent issue of the J. of Neuroscience.

Exalpha has a broad range of reagents and kit for studying Rb and cell cycle events.
