Term Information [More information on myelination in peripheral nervous system]

Accession
GO:0022011
Name
myelination in peripheral nervous system
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
peripheral nervous system myelination
Definition
The process in which neuronal axons and dendrites become coated with a segmented lipid-rich sheath (myelin) to enable faster and more energetically efficient conduction of electrical impulses. The sheath is formed by the cell membranes of Schwann cells in the peripheral nervous system. Adjacent myelin segments are separated by a non-myelinated stretch of axon called a node of Ranvier.
