Abstract

We have examined neurite outgrowth in rat sensory neurones when cytosolic free calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i) was varied in the range 0-60 nM. Neurite outgrowth was maximal at 35 nM [Ca2+]i and was reduced at higher and lower values of [Ca2+]i. These results provide direct evidence for Mattson and Kater's9 suggestion of an optimal calcium range for growth cone function.
