    BMC Neurosci 5:1. 2004
    ..In the present study, we describe the molecular mechanisms by which TGF-beta1 regulates Ant1 gene expression in cultured primary rodent astrocytes...

    J Neurosci 19:10778-88. 1999
    ..Because these CS-PGs are capable of inhibiting neurite outgrowth in vitro, our data suggest that phosphacan and neurocan in areas of reactive gliosis may contribute to axonal regenerative failure after CNS injury...
