We overexpressed two deletion mutants of the N-terminal domain of beta-catenin in ventral optic axons in living Xenopus tadpoles. One deletion mutant contained both the alpha-catenin and the GSK-3beta binding sites of the N-terminal domain of beta-catenin (NTERM), and the second deletion mutant contained only the GSK-3beta binding site (beta-cat107).(More)
Although surgical re-implantation of spinal roots may improve recovery of proximal motor function after cervical root avulsion, recovery of sensory function necessary for fine motor coordination of the hand has been difficult to achieve, in large part because of failure of regeneration of axons into the spinal cord. In order to enhance regeneration, we(More)
