Does spinal cord injury influence endogenous neural stem progenitor cell characteristics? In-vivo and in-vitro studies in a rat spinal cord injury model

F. Knerlich-Lukoschus, S. Krossa, R. Lucius, H.M. Mehdorn & J. Held-Feindt
Objective: Recruitment of endogenous self-renewing neural stem progenitor cells (NSPCs) provides a powerful tool for spinal cord injury (SCI) repair strategies. The characterization of the NSPC properties is essential for creating such innovative approaches. Methods: Spinal cord (sc) lesions (200kdyn;[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
