Gulino R, Parenti R, Gulisano M (2015) Novel mechanisms of spinal cord plasticity in a mouse model of motoneuron disease. Biomed Res Int 2015:654637. doi: 10.1155/2015/654637
Summary: Here the authors investigate spinal plasticity mechanisms involving a number of different proteins, including BDNF, Shh, Notch-1, Numb, and Noggin. The model used is a mouse motoneuron depletion strategy, where the animals receive 3 μg of CTB-SAP (Cat. #IT-14) into each of the medial and lateral gastrocnemius muscles. The results indicate that TDP-43, a nuclear DNA/RNA binding protein, may be an important regulator of synaptic plasticity.
