Inhibition of CRMP2 phosphorylation promotes axonal regeneration after optic nerve injury

A new study by Professor Toshio Ohshima of Waseda University has found that the inhibition of phosphorylation of collapsing response mediator protein 2, a microtubule-binding protein, suppresses degeneration of nerve fibers and promotes its regeneration after optic nerve injury.
