During development, a neuron transitions from a state of rapid growth to a stable morphology, and neurons within the adult mammalian CNS lose their ability to effectively regenerate in response to injury. Here, we identify a novel form of neuronal regeneration, which is remarkably independent of DLK-1/DLK, KGB-1/JNK, and other MAPK signaling factors known(More)
Regulated calcium signals play conserved instructive roles in neuronal repair, but how localized calcium stores are differentially mobilized, or might be directly manipulated, to stimulate regeneration within native contexts is poorly understood. We find here that localized calcium release from the endoplasmic reticulum via ryanodine receptor (RyR) channels(More)
Large numbers of people suffer from nervous system injuries and neurodegenerative diseases each year, with little success in regaining lost neural functions. Attempts to successfully regenerate nervous tissue in the mammalian Central Nervous System have meet with limited success. Simpler models have thus been useful in determining conserved mechanisms in(More)
