Experimental Therapy Restores Nerve Insulation Damaged by Disease

This image from a paper in Nature Medicine shows how inhibiting an enzyme called HDAC3 in mice increases the expansion of Schwann cells (green). Schwann cells form a protective insulating layer called the myelin sheath around the nerves. Blocking HDAC3 increases the production of myelin proteins, shown in red.Credit: Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
