Axon regeneration after spinal cord injury: insight from genetically modified mouse models.

The use of genetically modified mice to study axon regeneration after spinal cord injury has served as a useful in vivo model for both loss-of-function and gain-of-function analysis of candidate proteins. This review discusses the impact of genetically modified mice on axon regeneration after spinal cord injury in the context of axon growth inhibition by… (More)
