IN 1953 the presence of the characteristic concentric lamellar structure of the myelin sheath was demonstrated in sciatic nerves of chick embryos (2). In the fibers from embryos incubated for 18 days, the alternate dense and less dense bands of the myelin sheath were closely packed, with a unit of spacing of about 97 A. There were about 24 layers (a layer… CONTINUE READING
