The Role of Axonal Transport in the Growth of the Olfactory Nerve Axons
Numerous studies have analyzed changes in axonal transport that accompany nerve regeneration. These investigations have generally been carried out in vertebrate peripheral nerve or in lower vertebrate optic nerve, systems in which nerve injury is followed by rapid distal degeneration and regrowth of injured axons. (For review: see Graf stein and McQuarrie .) Findings to date have included changes in the amount and composition of rapidly transported molecules and changes in both rate of transport and composition of slowly transported molecules [6, 9, 14]. The significance of the observed changes in facilitating the processes of axonal outgrowth and functional reconnection is still poorly understood.
