After optic nerve section (ONS) and simultaneous application of FG to the nerve stump (group 1 experiments), GAP-43 immunoreactive RGCs (between 2 and 21 days after ONS) always represented a subfraction of both FG-labeled (i.e., surviving) RGCs and RGCs exhibiting c-JUN. GAP-43 immunoreactive RGCs represented 22% of RGCs normally present in rat retinae and 25% of surviving RGCs at 5 days after ONS but were reduced to 2% and 1%, which is 6% and 5% of survivors at 14 and 21 days, respectively. In animals that received a peripheral nerve (PN) graft after ONS (group 2 experiments), RGCs with regenerating axons were identified by FG application to the graft at 14 and 21 days. When examined at 21 and 28 days, all FG-labeled RGCs exhibited GAP-43 immunoreactivity, and FG/GAP-43-labeled RGCs were 3% and 2% of those resent in normal rat retinae. In relation to surviving. RGCs GAP-43 immunoreactive RGCs represented 10% at both time points. FG-/GAP-43 labeled RGCs also exhibited c-JUN, but c-JUN immunoreactive RGCs were at both time points at least twice as numerous a FG-/GAP-43-labeled RGCs. These data suggest that regenerating axons in PN grafts derive specifically from GAP-43 reexpressing RGCs. Appearance of GAP-43 immunoreactivity may therefore identify those RGCs that are capable of axonal regeneration or sprouting.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of Neurobiology 25 (1994), 12, pp. 1570-1578</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Stürmer, Claudia</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>GAP-43 immunoreactivity and axon regeneration in retinal ganglion cells of the rat</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:41:09Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/8175/1/GAP_43_1994.pdf"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:41:09Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/8175/1/GAP_43_1994.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Bähr, Martin</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/"/> <dc:contributor>Bähr, Martin</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
