Myelin structure in unfixed, single nerve fibers: Scanning X-ray microdiffraction with a beam size of 200nm.


Previous raster-scanning with a 1μm X-ray beam of individual, myelinated fibers from glutaraldehyde-fixed rat sciatic nerve revealed a spatially-dependent variation in the diffraction patterns from single fibers. Analysis indicated differences in the myelin periodicity, membrane separations, distribution of proteins, and orientation of membrane lamellae. As… (More)
