In axonal regeneration after a peripheral nerve injury, Schwann cells migrate from the two nerve ends and at last form a continuous tissue cable across the gap which guides the axons toward the bands of Bungner. However, the behavior of migratory Schwann cells and their possible role are obscure. Using a film model in which the proximal stump of a transected nerve in mice was sandwiched between two thin plastic films, we analyzed neural regeneration in the early phase up to the 6th day after… CONTINUE READING
