Structure and composition of myelinated axons: a multimodal synchrotron spectro-microscopy study.


We report elemental mappings on the sub-cellular level of myelinated sciatic neurons isolated from wild type mice, with high spatial resolution. The distribution of P, S, Cl, Na, K, Fe, Mn, Cu was imaged in freeze-dried as well as cryo-preserved specimen, using the recently developed cryogenic sample environment at beamline ID21 at the European Synchrotron… (More)
