Neurotransmitter Synthesis by Neuroblastoma Clones
This article demonstrates the connection Nirenberg sees between biochemical genetic research and neurobiology. The authors
suggest that because genes determine neurotransmitter species, and gene expression is inherited and perpetuated for hundreds
of generations, the study of neuronal tumors allows the researcher to explore the relationship between disease, heredity,
and environmental influences.
