Peripheral Nervous System Myelin Properties and Metabolism

  • Marion Edmonds Smith

Abstract

Available knowledge about peripheral nervous system (PNS) myelin has increased considerably since the first edition of the Handbook of Neurochemistry. At that time, CNS myelin was a subject of intense investigation in regard to both composition and metabolism, but very few laboratories had isolated peripheral nervous system myelin, and only the lipid composition had been measured. In this edition of the Handbook, aspects of PNS myelin and its pathology are a major subject of a number of chapters including those on the Schwann cell, peripheral nerve, nerve regeneration, Wallerian degeneration, and allergic neuritis. The interested reader may also refer to a chapter on CNS myelin for comparison of the characteristics and metabolism of CNS and PNS myelin.
