Are there proliferating neuronal precursors in adult rat dorsal root ganglia?


The origin of new neurons in dorsal root ganglia of adult rat was investigated using an experimental model in which postnatal neurogenesis naturally occurring is enhanced and restricted in a brief period of life. Possible mitotic origin of new neurons was investigated by means of 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine, anti-NF 200 antibody was used to detect if… (More)
