Proximal and distal stumps of the sciatic nerve of rats were examined with the light and electron microscope in the course of 48 hours following nerve crush. On both sides of the lesion organelles accumulate in axons beyond regions disorganized by injury. A stretch of clear axoplasm filled with fine granules usually separates the cone of accumulating particles from the damaged part of the fibre. From two hours onwards closely packed vesicles, tubules, mitochondria and other organelles form… CONTINUE READING
