General description

The two major components of CNS myelin are Myelin Basic Protein (MBP) and proteolipid protein (PLP), occuring in roughly equimolar proportions. There are many neurological disorders associated with deficiencies of myelin assembly and structure. For example Multiple Sclerosis is a human disease due to multiple factors but generally characterized by the degradation of the myelin sheath. MBP ususally refers to the 18.5 kDa isoform, which is one of the most abundant proteins of the myelin sheath of adult human and bovine CNS. Genetically, MBP is the product of differential splicing of a single mRNA transcript. In humans there are 4 isoforms, 21.5, 20.2, 18.5, and 17.2 kDa. Thus, MBP are present in multiple isoforms, part of a large family of developmentally expressed, translocatable, and highly post-translationally modifed proteins with multiple binding partners. Structurally, MBP displays a predominately unorganized form with greater than 75% in random coil. Other non-CNS related functions of myelin include insulin induction and glucagon release from pancreatic islets.


Reacts with MBP from all species tested including human, bovine, sheep, rabbit, mouse, rat, guinea pig and chicken.
Reacts with MBP from all species tested. It reacts weakly with peptides ending in the phe 91 where the 91-92 phe-phe bond is broken. Synthetic peptide 82-99 reacts very well as does intact MBP. Mapped to the region DENPVV.
