NGFR-mRNA expression in sciatic nerve: a sensitive indicator of early stages of axonopathy.

Abstract

Expression of the low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor (NGFR) in the sciatic nerve (particularly Schwann cells) is high during development but is downregulated upon establishment of the mature axon-Schwann cell relationship. NGFR is re-expressed by Schwann cells if this relationship is altered by degeneration of axons (axotomy) or myelin (tellurium… (More)
