The inability of axons in central nervous system (CNS) to regenerate after injury is related partly to multiple endogenous axon growth inhibitors including Nogo receptor (NgR). This study tested the hypothesis that silencing NgR expression by adenovirus-mediated RNA interference (RNAi) (AD-NgR) may permit axonal connectivity after focal cerebral ischemia in(More)
BACKGROUND High quality clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) can provide clinicians with explicit recommendations on how to manage health conditions and bridge the gap between research and clinical practice. Unfortunately, the quality of CPGs for multiple sclerosis (MS) has not been evaluated. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the methodological quality of CPGs on MS(More)
Repulsive guidance molecule-a (RGMa) is associated with axon growth inhibition in different central nervous system (CNS) injuries, but its signaling pathways remain unclear. We examined the involvement of collapsin response mediator protein-2 (CRMP-2), a common downstream target of Rho-kinase and GSK-3β, in vitro by culturing neonatal rat primary cortical(More)
Repulsive guidance molecule a (RGMa) is a neurite growth inhibitor that is of great interest in the study of CNS neuronal regeneration. We adopted RNA interference (RNAi) as a means of suppressing the expression of RGMa and observed the improvement in axonal regeneration and neurological function of rats after cerebral ischemic injury.
