The pressure wave in the axoplasm is governed by a 1D Navier-Stokes model:
By isolating proteins from axoplasm, they have determined those essential to movement.
The Schwann cell lamina enveloped each nerve fiber and in the axoplasm was noted the meshwork of neurofilaments, mitochondria and neurotubules (Figs.
About 3-10 [micro]l of pure axoplasm, uncontaminated by sheath or glial cells, can be collected from a single giant axon, depending on size, making it possible to collect up to 300-1000 [micro]l of axoplasm from 10 squid (2 axons per squid).
Preliminary experiments were performed in which the His-kinesin tail fragment was added to extruded axoplasm from the squid giant axon (Fig.
In this study we show that the globular tail fragment of myosin-V displaces native myosin-V from vesicles isolated from squid brain and blocks vesicle transport on actin filaments in axoplasm from the squid giant axon.
5 mg/ml) was added to axoplasm in the presence of 5 mM ATP, and the sample was warmed to 24[degrees]G.
We have developed novel methodology for isolating them from axoplasm (4).
Direct measurements of axoplasm ic resistance further supported this hypothesis.
Therefore we plan to produce squid recombinant proteins to determine whether vesicle transport is inhibited in axoplasm.
