The recently described single copy myelin-associated oligodendrocytic basic protein (Mobp) gene is expressed exclusively in the central nervous system (CNS). The gene encodes a family of small highly basic polypeptides with predicted amino acid lengths of 69, 71, 81, 99 and 170, all of which share a 68 residue amino terminal. Here we report on the subcellular distribution of two of these polypeptides termed MOBP81 and MOBP170 in transiently transfected Cos7 cells using an antibody raised… CONTINUE READING
