The expression of the extracellular matrix phosphoglycoprotein CD44 after compression injury of the spinal cord was examined in rats. Western blot analysis of tissues harvested on days 0 (sham), 1, 4 and 7 post-injury showed significant increases in CD44 expression from 1 to 7 days after compression injury compared to sham-operated controls. Immunohistochemistry revealed that CD44 was constitutively expressed in some astrocytes in sham-operated controls. At days 4-7 post-injury, CD44 was… CONTINUE READING
