‘Anti-sense’ RNA aids repair of damaged nerves

Scientists have discovered that an “anti-sense” RNA (AS-RNA) is expressed after nerve injury to regulate how the damaged nerves rebuild their coating of myelin. That myelin, like the cladding around a cable or wire, is crucial for making nerves efficient Continue reading ‘Anti-sense’ RNA aids repair of damaged nerves
