Abstract

We have analyzed the axonal transport of βIII-tubulin in the central (dorsal root) and peripheral (sciatic nerve) branches of sensory axons after injury of the sciatic nerve. Our finding that the relative amount of βIII-tubulin transported in slow component b (SCb) is increased in both axonal branches does not support the generally accepted hypothesis that the transport of cytoskeletal proteins is altered in the peripheral, but not the central branch after injury of the sciatic nerve.
