A suspension of about 10,000 purified Schwann cells cultured from the neonatal rat sciatic nerve was transplanted into a discrete site in the upper cervical level of the corticospinal tract of one side in adult rats. From 4 days after transplantation immunostaining for p75 (low-affinity neurotrophin receptor) showed that the transplants consisted of a central mass of Schwann cells and cuffs of elongated Schwann cells along the perivascular space of curving blood vessels (most of which had been… CONTINUE READING
