What is it about?

The findings of this study elucidate the spatiotemporal distributions of HK3 after SCI in female rats. It is mainly expressed in astrocytes, neurons and microglia in normal spinal cords, and could rapidly increase in infiltrated leukocytes, activated microglia/macrophages and astrocytes after SCI.

Why is it important?

Our findings show that HK3 may be involved in the pathologic process of SCI by promoting glucose metabolism.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations. I hope this article makes what people might think is a boring, slightly abstract area like health economics and measuring things like health, kind of interesting and maybe even exciting.
