The optic nerve of the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) was transected and the regeneration process was investigated. The nerve regeneration was confirmed by observing the extension of the axon and by examining the recovery of axonal transport. Following optic nerve transection, the rapid and transient increase of messenger RNA of alpha-tubulin gene was observed… CONTINUE READING
