High impact information on ncam1

  • We analyzed changes in the expression of mRNAs for the axonal growth-promoting cell recognition molecules L1.1, L1.2, and neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) after a rostral (proximal) or caudal (distal) spinal cord transection in adult zebrafish [1].
  • After distal lesion, upregulation of L1.1 and L1.2 mRNAs, but not NCAM mRNA expression, was observed in the first class of nuclei [1].
