Molecular mechanisms of radial axonal growth: insights from analysis of neurofilament gene-targeted mice (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)For the nervous system to send signals rapidly, axons must undergo growth that expands their diameter. This process is known as radial growth and is dependent upon insulating myelin that wraps around the axon and the ...
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is due to the loss of the telomeric survival motor neuron gene (SMN1) and results in degeneration of motor neurons, muscle atrophy, and loss of motor function. The centromeric SMN gene (SMN2) ...
