Experimental Biology


The spinal ganglia of sexually mature cats were autografted into the mesocolon and investigated after intervals of between 1 day and 9 months. About 30% of differentiated sensory neurons survived for long periods after grafting. A distinguishing feature of the transplanted sensory neurons was the intensive regeneration of their processes. Total myelination of the regenerating nerves occurred after 3–5 months. Potential regenerative powers of differentiated sensory neurons and the possibility of their long-term transplantation were revealed.
