We have screened genes predominantly expressed in the rat spinal cord, and we report here cloning of the most abundant unknown gene. It is a novel member of the central nervous system (CNS) myelin-constituting proteins, myelin-associated oligodendrocytic basic protein (MOBP). MOBP is abundantly expressed specifically in oligodendrocytes at the mRNA level only next to myelin basic protein (MBP) and proteolipid protein. Two isoforms have been confirmed. One of them has proline-rich tandem repeats… CONTINUE READING
