The nerve growth factor from the venoms of Crotalus adamanteus and Bothrops jararaca was analyzed by chromatography and gel filtration. The data obtained suggest that purified nerve growth factor aggregates and dissociates to form active molecules of various molecular weights. Evidence was found for the existence of an active nerve growth factor, possibly a fragment or a subunit, having a molecular weight of less than 5,000.
