Background and aims: Neurogenesis is upregulated following stroke, and may contribute to brain repair. Neurogenesis is typically studied invasively. Recently, transgenic mice were generated that express either Discoma sp reef coral red fluorescent protein (DsRed) (Couillard-Després et al. Eur J Neurosci 2006;24: 1535–45), or the bioluminescent enzyme luciferase (LUC) (Couillard-Després et al. Mol Imaging 2008; 7:28–34), under the control of the migrating neuroblast promoter doublecortin (DCX… CONTINUE READING
