Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is expressed in reactive astrocytes following injury in the CNS. However, the effects of activation of the EGFR pathway in astrocytes are not well established. In the present study, we demonstrate that activation of EGFR causes optic nerve astrocytes, as well as brain astrocytes, to form cribriform structures with… CONTINUE READING
