|ANA_21719_sm_SupFig1.tif||2363K||Supplementary Fig 1. Histomorphometric parameters of myelinated nerve fibers in the sciatic nerve. Axonal density of myelinated nerve fibers is significant lower in active experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) animals (n = 5) than in controls (C; n = 4). Morphometric analysis does not reveal significant differences between myelinated fibers of the sciatic nerve in control animals and in active EAE animals. Error bars indicate standard error of the mean. *p < 0.05.|

(A) Photomicrographs of the ventral horn of the spinal cord show APP-positive ovoids at the different investigated disease stages. Scale bar: 50μm. (B) Higher magnification of the lamina 9 shows APP signal (arrows) around the α-motor neurons. Scale bar: 12.5μm. PLP = proteolipid protein.|
