Requirement of myeloid cells for axon regeneration.

Abstract

The role of CD11b+ myeloid cells in axonal regeneration was assessed using axonal injury models and CD11b-TK(mt-30) mice expressing a mutated HSV-1 thymidine kinase (TK) gene regulated by the myeloid-specific CD11b promoter. Continuous delivery of ganciclovir at a sciatic nerve lesion site greatly decreased the number of granulocytes/inflammatory monocytes… (More)
