"Classic" myelin basic proteins are expressed in lymphoid tissue macrophages.

"Classic" myelin basic proteins (MBPs) are demonstrated in lymph nodes of SJL mice by western blot and RT-PCR. Interestingly, expression of these "classic" MBPs was increased during the late relapsing phase of adoptive experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). When splenocytes from SJL mice were separated into macrophage versus B lymphocyte-enriched… CONTINUE READING
