Researchers discover molecular process that may hold potential to accelerate nerve injury recovery in mice


By manipulating molecular models, researchers discover protein that could accelerate recovery from peripheral nerve injury.

A team of researchers at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA; CA, USA) have discovered a molecular process that controls the growth rate of nerves during embryonic development and recovery from injury throughout life.

In the study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, the team used mice models to demonstrate the acceleration of peripheral nerve growth caused by manipulating the molecular models.
