The rat pheochromocytoma cell line, PC12 that in in-vitro condition under inductive factors differentiate and convert into neuron-like cells. Researches have shown that different factors, for example, NGF and bee venom or its components have different effects on proliferation, survival and differentiation of the cells. In this study the PC12 cells were seeded in the culture medium (RPMI-1640) at 5µ103 cell ∕well in poly-D-lysine (0.05 mg∕ml) coated 24- well culture plates, allowed to grow for 24hrs, and PC12 cells were treated with NGF for 10 days and were surveyed morphologically in the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th days and used various concentrations of honey bee venom for cellular differentiation analysis that the optimum concentrations were 1 μg/ml and 3 μg/ml, and using NGF with the concentration of 50 ng/ml and the venom with the concentrations of 1 μg/ml and 3 μg/ml simultaneously; The viability of PC12 cells was analyzed by using MTT assay, and cell differentiation were surveyed AChE activity assay and morphologically.
