Myelin basic protein (MBP) is a single-chain, flexible polypeptide of about 18.5kD existing in its natural environment as an extrinsic and loosely bound component of the cytoplasmic portion of the myelin membrane sandwich. Ultrastructural immunocytochemistry with anti-myelin basic protein has shown that MBP is localized in the compact myelin sheath. MBP has not been demonstrated in rough endoplasmic reticulum, lysosomes or any other cytoplasmic organelles (3). MBP serves as a marker for oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells (3). MBP is also a marker for malignant schwannomas (4) and appears to play a significant role in the etiology of multiple sclerosis (5-7) and experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (8).
Immunogen: Bovine myelin basic protein. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing MBP are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as MBP may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Blood, Brain, Heart, Kidney, Lymph, Lymph Node, Muscle, Nerve, Spinal Cord, Spleen tissues are correlated with this protein. Brain Diseases, Cardiovascular Diseases, Demyelinating Diseases, Disease Models, Animal, Encephalomyelitis, Autoimmune, Experimental, Hypertension, Inflammation, Necrosis, Neoplasms, Nervous System Diseases are some of the diseases may be linked to Myelin Basic Protein, aa82-87 (MBP).
