Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Schwann cells and primary progenitor cells improve regeneration across peripheral nerve defects. This study examined the impact of immortalized neural precursor cells on regeneration of rat nerve defects. Across 10-mm gaps, neuromas formed without neural cables with C17.2- or RN33B-transplanted cells, but neural cables formed across 5-mm gaps seeded with RN33B cells. In vitro, dorsal root ganglia neurites elongated across Schwann and RN33B cells; RN33B cells induced neurite branching with shorter total outgrowth. Neural cable formation in vivo was likely determined by the balance of guidance and branch-inducing factors secreted by Schwann and transplanted precursor cells.
