Caption: Oligodendrocyte nerve cells. Fluorescent light micrograph of oligodendrocytes from a mouse. The mouse had been genetically engineered to express green fluorescent protein (GFP) in its oligodendrocytes. These cells form the myelin sheath around neurons (nerve cells) in the central nervous system (CNS). The myelin sheath insulates the nerve axon, allowing for faster transmission of electrical impulses. One oligodendrocyte may be responsible for the myelination of up to 50 nerve fibres.
