A morphological and biochemical study of the myelin-like membrane structures formed in cultures of pure oligodendrocytes.


This study reports the production of myelin-like membranes in oligodendrocyte subcultures derived from 20-day-old primary glial cell cultures of newborn rat brain. These multi-layered structures show a variable number of membrane turns; up to 10 concentric lamellae are found in 3- to 4-week-old subcultures. When they are compacted, alternate dense and… (More)
