Axonal degeneration is one of the initial steps in many neurological disorders and has been associated with increased autophagic activity. Although there are increasing data on the regulation of autophagy proteins in the neuronal soma after spinal cord injury (SCI), their characterization in the axon is scarce. Here, we examined the regulation of autophagy(More)
A lesion to the rat rubrospinal tract is a model for traumatic spinal cord lesions and results in atrophy of the red nucleus neurons, axonal dieback, and locomotor deficits. In this study, we used adeno-associated virus (AAV)-mediated over-expression of BAG1 and ROCK2-shRNA in the red nucleus to trace [by co-expression of enhanced green fluorescent protein(More)
