ax·o·nal

(ak'sō-năl),
Pertaining to an axon; most often used to describe the type of underlying nerve pathology responsible for generalized polyneuropathies. In this context, usually used incorrectly, that is, "axonal polyneuropathy", rather than "axon loss polyneuropathy" (to distinguish the disorder from a "demyelinating polyneuropathy").

Therefore, it has been suggested that serotonin would be axonally transported from the CNS towards the gonads, where several serotonin-immunoreactive fiberlike projections have been observed surrounding male and female acini (Matsutani and Nomura, 1986; Ram et at., 1992; Paulet et at., 1993; Croll et at.
More recently, axonally localized mRNA in a mature neural circuit was linked to axonal survival and neurodegeneration [21].
Using immunofluorescence microscopy, we confirmed that neprilysin is essentially exclusively expressed in neurons, not in glia, and that the peptidase, after synthesis in the soma, is axonally transported to presynaptic terminals, (66) presumably in a manner similar to the way APP is transported.
