Muscle segments excised from rabbit biceps femoris muscles were treated with detergent sodium dodecyl sulphate to denature cellular constituents, and each was autografted in a 5 cm gap of the sciatic nerve in the same rabbit. Axonal regrowth through the grafts and reinnervation into the host sciatic nerves and muscles were studied morphologically, and… CONTINUE READING
