  • These lines of cell guide the axon regeneration in proper direction.
  • Other evidence suggests that gene-therapy induced expression of neurotrophic factors within the target muscle itself can also help enhance axon regeneration.
  • Glial cells have been investigated in an attempt to understand the mechanisms behind their abilities to promote axon regeneration.
  • This upregulation implies that peripherin may also play a role in axon regeneration.
  • Axon regeneration does not occur in areas with an increase in GFAP and vimentin.
  • The rate of axon regeneration is approximately 1-2 mm per day.
  • Evidence supports that voluntary exercise leads to increased axon regeneration and neurite outgrowth compared to sedentary animals.
  • Localized delivery of soluble neurotrophic factors may help promote the rate of axon regeneration observed within these graft conduits.
  • Chromatolysis is reversed when the cell is prepared for axon regeneration.
  • Axon regeneration is characterized by the formation of a growth cone.
  • Insulin-like Growth Factors (IGFs) have been shown to increase the rate of peripheral nervous system axon regeneration.
  • The next year, Benowitz discovers that inosine is important in controlling axon regeneration in nerve cells.
  • This cytokine, called osteopontin, may be able to aid in axon regeneration by exposing its integrin receptor binding sites.
  • NUDEL is also known to play a role in axon regeneration and has an additional DISC1-modulated function as a cysteine endopeptidase.
  • As the mesh size increases, the hydrogel is able to serve as a scaffold for axon regeneration.
  • Axon regeneration was studied using collagen tubes with incorporated peptides.
  • The frequency of stimulation is an important factor in the success of both quality and quantity of axon regeneration as well as growth of the surrounding myelin and blood vessels that support the axon.
  • The choice of which physical, chemical and biological cues to use is based on the properties of the nerve environment, which is critical in creating the most desirable environment for axon regeneration.
  • The basal lamina components that the Schwann cells secrete help to guide axon regeneration.
  • The processes that occur in peripheral regeneration can be divided into the following major events: Wallerian degeneration, axon regeneration/growth, and nerve reinnervation.
