Image: A confocal micrograph of the lesion core following spinal cord injury. Nuclear EdU (red) shows the presence of newly differentiated cells which produce Schwann cell myelin (green). These peripheral-like Schwann cells remyelinate central axons in the injured spinal cord and are important for spontaneous repair and functional recovery after spinal cord injury (Photo courtesy of King\'s College London).

Molecular Mechanism Regulating Regeneration of Spinal Nerves Identified

The protein neuregulin-1 was found to regulate the repair mechanism that attempts to restore lost myelin following spinal cord injury.  More...
