It is currently unclear whether retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axon regeneration depends on down-regulation of axon growth-inhibitory proteins, and to what extent outgrowth-promoting substrates contribute to RGC axon regeneration in reptiles. We performed an immunohistochemical study of the regulation of the axon growth-inhibiting extracellular matrix molecules tenascin-R and chondroitin sulphate proteoglycan (CSPG), the axon outgrowth-promoting extracellular matrix proteins fibronectin and… CONTINUE READING
