FIGURE 15.4

PMR at two weeks in adult rats is dependent on retrograde transport from the denervated muscle branch. Animals received the long-muscle:short-cutaneous (LM-SC) surgical preparation. In addition, at the same time as the proximal femoral nerve repair the distal muscle branch was injected with saline (control), or colchicine, or received a crush injury. Two weeks later we quantified the number of motor neurons projecting to the two terminal nerve branches. PMR was evident only in the saline group, reproducing the initial finding shown in Figure 15.3 for the two-week time point.
