Abstract

We have used fish-specific antibodies to show that repair in regenerating goldfish spinal cord is accompanied by the recovery of the astrocytic environment and restoration of the central canal. Astrocyte processes trailed the regenerated axons bridging the new cord, suggesting that they are not needed for axonal regrowth.
