Here we reported the effects of neurite outgrowth-promoting prostaglandins (NEPP's) on neurons of the central nervous system (CNS). Serum deprivation promoted neurite outgrowth from CAD cells, a CNS-derived cathecholaminergic neuronal cell line. NEPP's (0.05-0.2 microM) accelerated the neurite outgrowth from CAD cells in serum-free medium but didn't in serum-containing medium. Through the study of structure-function relationship with the NEPP's 1-10, NEPP 10 (13,14-dihydro-15-epi-Delta(7)-prostaglandin A(1) (methyl ester) revealed the best compound, exhibiting potent neurite outgrowth-promoting activity with minimal cytotoxicity, suggesting that it is the best compound for drug development.
