Increased slow transport in axons of regenerating newt limbs after a nerve conditioning lesion.

Abstract

We have previously shown that a nerve conditioning lesion (CL) made 2 weeks prior to amputation results in an earlier onset of limb regeneration in newts. Studies in fish and mammals demonstrate that when a CL precedes a nerve testing lesion, slow component b (SCb) of axonal transport is increased compared to axons that had not received a CL. We wanted to… (More)
