MARCKS is a widely distributed primary substrate for PKC in the cytoplasm and is involved in neurite outgrowth and dendritic spine morphology during development (Calabrese and Halpain 2005).
Calcite itself would not be an effective material choice as a lining of the cuticular organule canals because in the enclosed small diameter (but extended length) of a gland or neurite canal, proton gradients could be established by bacteria that could dissolve a calcite lining easily.
It showed protective effect against apoptosis in human neuroblastoma cells by enhancing neurite outgrowth (84).
Compared to unmodified agarose gels, LN-modified agarose gels significantly enhanced neurite extension from three-dimensionally (3D) cultured embryonic day 9 (E9) chick dorsal root ganglia (DRGs), and PC 12 cells [73].
2007) investigated whether EPO had a positive effect on neurite outgrowth and if it could protect cultured neurocytes suffering from glutamate-induced cytotoxicity.
Radwan observed that all local anaesthetics produced growth cone collapse and neurite degeneration in isolated dorsal root ganglion neurons from chick embryos: the IC50 was approximately 10 (2,5) M for ropivacaine for 15 minutes of exposure (5).

This functional brain plasticity may be mediated by various processes, such as cell renewal, remyelination, neurite extension, new synapse formation, ion channel redistribution and cortical reorganization processes involving the main associative pathways.
Extracellular S100B acts as a beneficial factor by stimulating neurite outgrowth and cell survival through interactions with the receptor for advanced glycan end products, when present at nanomolar concentration (Businaro et al.
