Dihydroprogesterone Increases the Gene Expression of Myelin Basic Protein in Spinal Cord of Diabetic Rats

Abstract

Alterations in myelin membranes, as well as in the expression of myelin proteins have been reported in experimental models of diabetes. Data here reported show for the first time that the mRNA levels of two isoforms of myelin basic protein (MBP), 18.5 and 21.5 kDa, are decreased in the spinal cord of streptozotocin-treated rats and that treatment with a… (More)
