Modulations of the extracellular matrix and scar formation following central nervous system (CNS) injuries are considered prohibitive for axon regeneration, thus restricting functional recovery. Recent findings indicating that lysyl oxidase, an extracellular matrix-forming enzyme, appears in a time-dependent manner at brain injury sites have suggested that inhibition of this enzyme may be conducive for regeneration and functional recovery. Here, we report that after unilateral spinal cord… CONTINUE READING
