To delineate the biochemical sequences of myelination in the human brain, we analyzed the protein and lipid composition of white matter in 18 baseline cases ranging in age from midgestation through infancy, the critical period in human myelination when the most rapid changes occur. Three adult cases were used as indices of maturity, and 4 cases with major(More)
Myelinated CNS tissues from homozygous/hemizygous and heterozygous jimpy rumpshaker jprsh mutant mice were examined to determine the consequences on myelin structure of this mutation in the proteolipid protein (PLP) gene. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and immunoblotting of brain homogenates confirmed that there was a decrease in PLP levels on the B6C3(More)
