The permeability of the tight junctional system of myelin, at the juxtanodal myelin terminal loops and Schmidt-Lanterman incisures, was investigated using the ionic tracer lanthanum (a) in vivo followed by fixation, (b) concurrently with fixation, (c) following fixation. Employing the same methods the juxtanodal membrane complex formed between myelin loops and axolemma was also tested. The results of this study demonstrate that the periaxonal space (between axon and Schwann cell) is apparently… CONTINUE READING
