Thus, accumulation of DCUN1D2 and NEDD8 were strongly correlated with the diameter of the myelinated fibers.
Nerve fiber structure in D-gal-treated mice Myelinated fibers from the control mice appeared compact and homogeneous with integral sheaths; whereas the fibers from the D-gal-treated mice showed dilatation with irregular contours in which some sheaths displayed obvious splitting and vacancy in some places (Fig.
Tang and Nyengaard (1997) described a stereological method for quantitatively studying the white matter and the myelinated fibers in the white matter of human brain.
3 trillion synapses, and 4,470 miles of myelinated fibers.
As noted, unmyelinated fibers compose the gray matter of the brain: as the number of myelinated fibers increase, the gray matter decreases and the white matter increases.
Glycerol is a hyperbaric solution that is injected into the Meckel's cave to cause destruction to the myelinated fibers of the nerve.
Light microscopic study of paraffin- and resin-embedded nerve disclosed a slight to moderate decrease in both small- and large-diameter myelinated fibers.
The enormous space occupied by myelinated fibers leaves oligodendrocytes so far apart that it is impossible to see connections between cell bodies and myelin sheaths in adult tissue sections.
As noted above, loss of function after SCI is in large part due to damage to myelinated fibers in ascending and descending tracts within the spinal cord.
Nerve biopsy demonstrated severe loss of myelinated fibers in seven cases and amyloid deposits in three.
PATHOLOGY: Sural nerve biopsy shows a marked reduction in nerve size and depletion of large and small myelinated fibers but only a slightly decreased number of unmyelinated fibers as in our case.
Four parameters were quantified: 1) degeneration debris (%): to measure this, we took a photo at 100x magnification and calculated the total cross-sectional area of the nerve and then we identified areas of debris, connective tissue, and myelinated fibers; 2) area of connective tissue (%); 3) area of myelinated fibers (%), and 4) density of myelinated fibers/[mm.
