The Effects Of Homogenized Hind Limb Buds On The Regeneration Of Sciatic Nerve Axons In Adult Rana Pipens
A solution of homogenized hind limb buds was used as a source of an inducing agent(s). This was placed in an artificial sheath, bridging the ends of the severed sciatic nerve axon of which a small portion was removed and which also served to maintain localization of the inducing agent(s). These experimentals were compared with a control group whose sheath contained amphibian ringer's solution. No correlation could be found from the data obtained. However, it is believed that these results do not directly reflect the hypothesis because of the number of variables involved.
