However, myelin figures, vacuoles, and sporadic electron-dense granules were detected in axoplasmic regions.
It is known, for example, that the ion channels may be voltage-gated and also mechanically sensitive [48] and that an action potential generates an axoplasmic pressure wave in the intersticial fluid [43,44].
Optic nerve hydropic axonal degeneration and block retrograde axoplasmic transport.
It regulates the bloodretinal barrier, stimulates the growth and migration of cells, and regulates axoplasmic transport.
Platinum compounds accumulate in the dorsal root ganglia resulting in decreased cellular metabolism and axoplasmic transport [1-3].
The aggregation of tau and tubulin stabilizes the axonal structure and facilitates tubulin assembly and axoplasmic transport [33].
In neurocompression syndromes in which the nerves have difficulties in accommodating themselves inside the neural canal during wide upper limb motion, the neural blood supply and axoplasmic flow are reduced, resulting in the formation of connective tissue in structures adjacent to the nerve and in the nerve tissue itself.
Although the mechanism of drusen formation has not been fully determined, it is believed that congenitally small disc and scleral channels may cause axoplasmic flow stasis and ganglion cell axon death.
Transient ischemia of the retina results in altered retrograde axoplasmic transport: neuroprotection with brimonidine.
Increased intraocular pressure (IOP) is a consequence of abnormal high resistance to aqueous humor drainage via the trabecular meshwork, causing anterograde/retrograde axoplasmic flow impairment (the mechanical theory of glaucoma), and it is the leading risk factor for RGCs apoptosis in glaucoma [63].
