Microglial cells during the lesion-regeneration of the lizard medial cortex.

The lizard medial cortex (lizard fascia dentata) is capable of neural regeneration after being lesioned by the anti-metabolite 3-acetylpyridine (3AP). This study was aimed at detecting microglial behaviour during the medial cortex lesion-regeneration process using tomato lectin histochemistry to label microglia (both with light and electron microscopy) and… CONTINUE READING
