Changes in axon size and slow axonal transport are related in experimental diabetic neuropathy.


In the sciatic system of rats with streptozocin (SZ)-induced diabetes, delay of axonal transport of neurofilament (NF) proteins, tubulin, and other proteins is associated with a change in axonal caliber, which increases by 40% in lumbar motor roots and decreases by 36% in tibial nerves. Since in large myelinated axons caliber is a function of the number of… (More)
