Comments P.784 middle column top paragraph:"Components of the neuronal cytoskeleton and several axonal cytoplasmic proteins are conveyed by slow axonal transport at a rate of 0.1 to 3 mm/day (primary sources)." See Terada et al., 2000 PMID 11051554 p.141 left column bottom paragraph:"Slow axonal transport conveys cytosolic proteins, including cytoskeletal proteins, at the speed of around 1 mm per day (Grafstein and Forman, 1980 Lasek et al., 1984 Baas and Brown, 1997 Hirokawa et al., 1997 Hirokawa, 1998 Nixon, 1998)."
