Microtubules/mylenated axons

  1. Sep 18, 2008 #1
    how many microtubules are in a cross section of a typical mylenated axon? google brings up lots of hits but most are nonfree and those that arent give no number.

    thank you. but I already got it from the library and emailed it to my self. from what I can tell there should be about 200-500 microtubules per axon. I was really expecting more than that.
