The Nogo gene products were described first as myelin-associated inhibitors that prevent neuronal regeneration upon injury. Recent findings have also implicated Nogo in several neuronal pathologies that are not induced by physical injury. Nogo-A may be an important determinant of autoimmune demyelinating diseases, as active immunization with Nogo-A fragments attenuates the symptoms of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). Nogo-A levels are elevated markedly in hippocampal neurons of… CONTINUE READING
