The Schwann Cell

Abstract

Although Schwann cells were not a topic in the previous series of this Handbook, their properties were covered in a general review of the peripheral nerve by Porcellati.1 In addition, aspects of protein and lipid metabolism in peripheral nerve undergoing Wallerian degeneration were reviewed.2,3 Interest in the peripheral nervous system has grown over the past 10 years, and the discussions in this chapter on Schwann cells and in others on the peripheral nervous system (PNS) including PNS myelin (Vol. 3), peripheral nerve (Vol. 7), and nerve regeneration (Vol. 9) reflect this interest and the advancement made.
