Immunohistochemistry has been used to study, the capacity of different types of sensory axons in the saphenous nerve to extend into denervated glabrous skin territory after a chronic sciatic nerve lesion. In this study, the extension of the intact or regenerating thin peptidergic and coarse saphenous nerve fibres in adult and neonatal rats was determined. Substance P (SP) and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) antibodies were used as markers for thin axons and neurofilament (NF) antibodies… CONTINUE READING
