Objectives
To study the biochemical and biological characterization of the purified 22KD and 35 KD muscle neuronotrophioc factors specific for anterior horn motor neurons (MNTF1 and MNTF2), the development and application of its monoclonal antibodies, the isolation of its receptor and its distribution, the molecular gene cloning of these muscle neuronotrophic factors, and the clinical application of these neuronotrophic factors and their monoclonal antibodies.
