Mitochondria receive by transfer the great majority of their own proteins; these organelles are displaced along the axon and continue to exhibit a slight synthesis of hydrophobic polypeptides (Sy). The retrograde axonal transport has not been represented in this figure. (From Droz et al. 2 THE NEURON 27 somes (Pol) utilize microtubules (MT) and neurofilaments (MF) for transport. Many other interpretations are possible. Droz (1975) gives an excellent summary of the dynamic design involved in the activity of the nerve ending: The neuron has to cope with a paradoxical situation.
Some experiments have suggested an interconnection between neurofilaments and microtubules. In immature animals nerve fibers contain many microtubules but few neurofilaments. With increasing age there is a reversal in some axons, but even then the neurofilaments still tend to be aggregated. After treatment with colchicine, a mitotic spindle inhibitor, neurons initially lose their neurotubules while neurofilaments proliferate (Peters et at. 1976). Sometime afterward the process reverses. Since the diameter of a neurofilament is greater than the component filaments of the microtubule wall, it is supposed that any transformation would have to involve some rearrangement of common subunits.
Figures 1. 9). Many ribosomes are attached to the outer surface of these cisterns, but most occur between the cisterns with a characteristic polysomal array in rosettes of five or six granules. The basic combination of cisterns of endoplasmic reticulum with attached or free ribosomes in polysomal array occurs in all neurons. The process of translation is concentrated in the rough endoplasmic reticulum. It commences when messenger RNA becomes attached to a ribosome. The messenger RNA is composed of groups of three nucleotides called codons.
