Altering the target site of the microbeam to the mid-point of an axopodium and prolonging the irradiation time results in the amputation of the distal portion of the axopodium. Both retraction and amputation may involve an ultraviolet light dependent breakdown of cytoplasmic microtubules. Axopodia grow out again after retraction and after amputation.

Axopodia which have been caused to retract grow at a mean rate which is faster than that of axopodia which have been amputated.
