Cytoplasmic Domains of the Myelin-associated Glycoprotein

Abstract

The function of the vertebrate nervous system is based on the rapid and accurate transmission of electrical impulses. The myelin sheath is a lipid-rich membrane that envelops the axon, preventing the leakage of the nervous impulse to the environment. Myelin is formed when the plasma membrane of a myelinating glial cell differentiates and wraps around an… (More)
