Growing Myelin around Regenerated Axons after CNS Injury

In this issue of Neuron, Wang et al. demonstrate that both cell-intrinsic and -extrinsic factors restrict the myelination of newly regenerated axons. Pharmalogical targeting of GPR17 signaling in oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs) and microglial inhibition of oligodendrocyte maturation together promote robust myelination of regenerated axons after CNS injury.
