Matamoros AJ (2018) Microtubule-mediated nerve regeneration: Knocking down the microtubule severing protein fidgetin augments nerve regeneration in vitro and in vivo. Drexel University Thesis.
Objective: To explore the effects of fidgetin knockdown in adult dorsal root ganglia both in vitro and in vivo.
Summary: In vitro: fidgetin knockdown in adult dorsal root ganglia neurons increases a specific domain of microtubule mass responsible for expanding microtubules, increases the length of axons on and off the inhibitory spots, and promotes cellular growth on and across the inhibitory spots. In vivo: fidgetin augments nerve regeneration in vivo, thus highlighting fidgetin as a novel therapeutic target to augment nerve regeneration
