Gene pathway responsible for peripheral nervous system regeneration identified.

It is known that the regenerative capacity of the injured central nervous system (CNS) in adult mammals is severely limited, yet axons in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) regrow, albeit to a limited extent, after injury.  Researchers hypothesize that differences in the regenerative potential between injured PNS neurons and injured CNS neurons reflect major differences in intrinsic transcriptional networks, however,
