  • The relevance of astrogliosis remains controversial, especially with respect to the beneficial or detrimental influence of reactive astrocytes on CNS recovery. This dichotomy can be resolved if the mediators of astrogliosis are identified. We have measured the levels of transcripts encoding inflammatory cytokines in injury systems in which the presence or absence of astrogliosis could be produced selectively. A stab injury to the adult mouse brain using a piece of nitrocellulose (NC) membrane… CONTINUE READING
