Hemispheres, spinal cords, and sciatic nerves were taken from taiep, carrier, and control rats at ages ranging from 1 day to 16 months. Absolute myelin yields from CNS taiep tissues peaked at approximately 2 months and then decreased until they reached a low but stable level. Myelin yield from the affected hemispheres expressed as a percentage of age-matched controls decreased continuously from 2 weeks until it reached a stable level of approximately 10-15%. The same was true for the spinal… CONTINUE READING
