Single slice through a single tilt tomogram of the Node of Ranvier from mouse sciatic nerve. This image has been downsampled from the raw data image which can be accessed using the link provided to the Cell Centered Database. For more information see: Sosinsky et al.

Tissue was obtained from a postnatal day 3 male mouse. Images were obtained using a JEOL 4000 microscope. Single tilt tomogram spanned -60 to 60° at 2° increments. Magnification: 20000X, accelerating voltage: 400.0 KeV.
