Abstract

Myelin inhibitory ligands of the Nogo-66 receptor (NgR1) limit axon regeneration in the adult CNS. Recent findings have identified additional co-receptors (functional homologues) of the trimeric NgR1 complex, post-translational modifications of the co-receptors within the cell membrane and novel Ca(2+)-dependent cytoplasmic-protein phosphorylation mechanisms. Such unique signalling pathways provide the potential to transduce myelin-derived growth inhibitory signals to the axonal cytoskeleton, and have been areas of intense investigation in recent years. Here, we summarize current understanding of the molecular basis of myelin-derived axon-growth inhibition in the CNS.
