Partial denervation or paralysis with botulinum toxin, manipulations that induce sprouting of nerve terminals in muscle, also induced terminal Schwann cells to extend processes. These processes were associated with every nerve sprout and in some cases were longer than the sprouts that appeared to be growing along them. Following partial denervation, more than 70% of the nerve sprouts that grew to innervate nearby denervated endplates were associated with Schwann cell processes that had extended… CONTINUE READING
