Vesicles and/or other membranous structures that form after axolemmal damage have recently been shown to repair (seal) the axolemma of various nerve axons. To determine the origin of such membranous structures, (1) we internally dialyzed isolated intact squid giant axons (GAs) and showed that elevation of intracellular Ca2+ >100 microM produced membranous structures similar to those in axons transected in Ca2+-containing physiological saline; (2) we exposed GA axoplasm to Ca2+-containing… CONTINUE READING
