In a paper published in this week’s PLOS ONE, Dr Kuo-Fen Lee and his colleagues at The Salk Institute describe how a protein named P45 may yield insight into a possible molecular mechanism to promote rerouting for spinal cord healing and functional recovery. Because injured mice can recover more fully than human beings, Lee sought the source of the difference. He discovered that P45 had a previously unknown neuroprotective effect.
