Grid-walk analysis of locomotor recovery. Graph showing the average number of missed steps per experimental group from 1 day before injury (baseline pre-injury) to 28 days after injury for all GDA-transplanted/dorsolateral funiculus injured rats versus the control-injured animals. GDABMP-transplanted animals (green) performed significantly better than GDACNTF-transplanted animals and injured control animals at all post-injury time points (p < 0.05). Note that the performance of GDACNTF-transplanted animals was not different from untreated control injured rats at all time points (two-way repeated measures ANOVA, *p < 0.05). N = 9 rats per group.
