The article describes the functionality of an extramitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in peripheral (sciatic) nerve. Isolated myelin vesicles express functional respiratory complexes and produce ATP, consuming oxygen. This ability is impaired when myelin is isolated from dys/demyelinated (CMT1A) sciatic nerve, although the OXPHOS proteins are present. This suggests that myelin structure is fundamental for the activity of the respiratory complexes.
