Abstract

Robust axon regeneration occurs after peripheral nerve injury through coordinated activation of a genetic program and local intracellular signaling cascades. Although regeneration-associated genes are being identified with increasing frequency, most aspects of regeneration-associated intracellular signaling remain poorly understood. Two independent studies now report that upregulation of cAMP is a component of the PNS regeneration program that can be exploited to enhance axon regeneration through the normally inhibitory CNS environment.
