In AN patients, all NF[kappa]B and RAGE positive cells were macrophages, whereas all NF[kappa]B and RAGE positive cells were Schwann cells
in HNPP patients (Figure 3b, c).
Prof Sieber-Blum's team showed it was possible to create large populations of human Schwann cells
in the laboratory, which interacted with nerves in the correct way.
Mighty bugs: leprosy bacteria turn Schwann cells
into stern cells.
Comprehensive NF1 screening on cultured Schwann cells
Conduction of impulses by axons regenerated in a Schwann cell
graft in the transected adult rat thoracic spinal cord.
When this gene malfunctions, Schwann cells
can grow out of control.
Schwannomas are benign tumors derived from the Schwann cells
that form the neural sheath.
but not olfactory ensheathing glia transplants improve hindlimb locomotor performance in the moderately contused adult rat thoracic spinal cord.
The postulated mechanisms of injury include direct needle trauma, secondary constriction by scar, and direct nerve fiber damage, due to both axon and Schwann cell
, with a breakdown in the blood-nerve barrier by neurotoxic chemicals in the injected agent (Gentili et al.
The Schwann cell
basal lamina persists and more Schwann cells
are recruited to this site and align themselves longitudinally, creating columns of cells called Bunger bands.
The research team was encouraged when they found that EG can also usher long nerve fiber growth into surviving spinal cord regions beyond the end of a Schwann cell
The usual habitat in the nerve is the Schwann cell
but occasionally the ensheathed axon becomes involved.
