Publication: Calcium influx through plasma-membrane nanoruptures drives axon degeneration in a model of multiple sclerosis.
Munich.  Here SFB researchers from Munich use in vivo calcium imaging in a multiple sclerosis model to show that cytoplasmic calcium levels determine the choice between axon loss and survival. Calcium can enter the axon through nanoscale ruptures of the axonal plasma membrane that are induced in inflammatory lesions. Neuron doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2018.12.023...more
