Changes of ornithine decarboxylase activity in dorsal root ganglion cells after axon injury: possible relationship to alterations in neuronal chromatin.

Abstract

An autoradiographic technique was used to detect changes in ornithine decarboxylase in rat dorsal root ganglion neurons after sciatic nerve lesions. Binding of [3H]difluoromethylornithine ([3H]DFMO) to tissue sections of L5 ganglia was compared between axotomized and unoperated ganglia at 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, and 30 days after a crush lesion… (More)
