Glial cells in the rat optic nerve were visualized by intracellular injections of horseradish peroxidase (HRP). A novel class of cell was encountered that was presumed to be an oligodendrocyte on the basis of arguments related to its light microscopic appearance after intracellular staining (Butt and Ransom, Glia 1989;2:470-475). These cells had 10-20 parallel processes 200-300 microns long that were oriented exclusively along the long axis of the optic nerve; the parallel processes were… CONTINUE READING
