In addition, when the researchers genetically altered mice to reduce the amount of PLXND1 that their nerves produced, they made what they said was a stunning finding: Not only did fewer nerves grow around tumor cells, but also the animals displayed a sharp decline in metastasis, suggesting that PNI is critical for metastatic PDA growth.

In order to verify our hypothesis and to collect data for understanding the potential role of astrocytes in axonal regeneration following PNI, we designed the present study.
In a review on triploidy-causing mechanisms (11), endoreduplication in one of the two PNi has been listed as a possibility because the evidence for this phenomenon was found in the maternal PN of two abnormally fertilized oocytes (12, 13).
