In this study, we explored the effect of vitamin B12 on nerve regeneration after TBI both in vivo and in vitro. Meanwhile, we investigated the role of ER stress during the vitamin B12 treatment for TBI by inspecting changes in neuronal apoptosis, microtubule, myelin regeneration, and axonal growth. Materials and Methods Animals Adult C57BL/6 male mice aged 6–8 weeks and weighing 20–26 g were purchased from the Animal Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Shanghai, China). Animals were housed under a 12-h light/dark cycle at 21–23°C and provided access to food and water ad libitum. The care and...
