Schwann cells within the distal portion of a transected nerve undergo a series of poorly understood events in response to injury and loss of axonal contact. These events may influence the regeneration of PNS neurons. In this study we examined the alteration of antigens located in the basal lamina, plasma membrane and cytoplasm of Schwann cells within the distal nerve stump: (a) after a complete transection of the sciatic nerve, and (b) subsequent to reestablished contact between regenerating… CONTINUE READING
