Crushing it: Indole-3 propionate promotes axonal regeneration in mice

Amanda N. Borowski, Helen E. Vuong

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Peripheral nerve injuries are prevalent, yet strategies to improve nerve regeneration and prevent neurological disabilities remain poorly defined. In a recent publication, Serger and colleagues demonstrate that intermittent fasting regulates the production of microbial metabolites that promote axonal regeneration and improve thermosensory responses in a mouse nerve injury model.
