    From my limited understanding, this may be helpful to the research in a general way, but is not specific to regrowth in the spinal cord.

    Maybe..
    "In addition to speeding peripheral nerve recovery, DiAntonio and Shin see possible implications in the central nervous system. It is known for example, that some of the important factors regulated and ramped up by DLK are not activated in the central nervous system.
    "Since this sort of signaling doesn't appear to happen in the central nervous system, it's possible these nerves don't 'know' when they are injured," DiAntonio says. "It's an exciting idea -- but not at all proven -- that activating DLK in the central nervous system could promote its regeneration."
