Downregulation of BM88 after optic nerve injury.
Hamilton, Canada. In Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci, 2014
PURPOSE: BM88 is a cell-cycle exit and neuronal differentiation protein that has been used as a marker of surviving retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) after optic nerve injury.
Neural stem cell transplantation in an animal model of traumatic brain injury.
Athens, Greece. In Methods Mol Biol, 2013
Along these lines, in this review we describe a protocol which involves transplantation of NPCs, genetically engineered to overexpress the neurogenic molecule Cend1 and have thus the potency to differentiate with higher frequency towards the neuronal lineage in a rodent model of stab wound cortical injury.
