Andrieu D, Meziane H, Marly F, Angelats C, Fernandez P, Muscatelli F. Sensory defects in Necdin deficient mice result from a loss of sensory neurons correlated within an increase of developmental programmed cell death. BMC Dev Biol. 2006;6:56 pubmed
..Finally we also exclude an anti-proliferative role of Necdin in developing sensory neurons. Overall, our data show clearly that, in early development of the nervous system, Necdin is an anti-apoptotic or survival factor. ..
