Comments P.628 top paragraph:"Using double ligated nerve to assess rate of accumulation of acetylcholinesterase (AChE), a rate of 260 mm/day in dog sciatic nerve was determined by Lubinska & Niemierko (1971 1st primary source). More recently, [investigators’] study of AChE transport gave a rate of 431 mm/day for cat sciatic nerve (Ranish & Ochs, 1972 2nd primary source)."
