Adult motoneurons can survive following axotomy, whereas neonate motoneurons result in cell death. Following hypoglossal nerve axotomy in neonate rat, Glial cell line-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF) receptor alpha-1 (GFRalpha-1) mRNA expression was dramatically suppressed in the injured motoneurons, while a slight increase of c-Ret mRNA expression was observed. In adult, both GFRalpha-1 and c-Ret mRNAs increased substantially after axotomy. The present result suggests that the difference of motoneuron fate after axotomy may be partly due to the coordinate or discordant responses of GFRalpha-1 and c-Ret expression to nerve injury.
