  • Schwann cell-axon contacts in developing and regenerating peripheral nerve in situ contain high levels of the recognition molecules L1 and N-CAM, while the molecules are not detectable at the ab-axonal cell surface of Schwann cells. (semanticscholar.org)
  • To investigate whether Schwann cells, axons, or both contribute to the localization of the molecules at Schwann cell-axon contacts, a heterologous cell culture system consisting of Schwann cells from mice and neurons from chicken was investigated by immunoelectron microscopy using species-specific L1 and N-CAM antibodies.

  • In this review, we propose that as a result of the tight cell biological interconnection of axons and myelin, damage to either can spread, which might convert a local inflammatory disease process early in MS into the global progressive disorder seen during later stages. (rupress.org)
  • In particular, we discuss the commonalities and differences in the way axons and glial cells degenerate to find out which mechanistic concepts can be transferred from one cell type to the other. (rupress.org)
