Abstract

The x-ray diffraction patterns of normal myelin, and of myelin expanded by soaking in hypotonic solutions, have been compared quantitatively. Application of the "shrinkage stage" method for determining the course of a real Fourier transform allows all but 2 of the 32 possible sign combinations to be eliminated.
