Four human myelin basic protein (MBP) variants with molecular masses of 21.5, 20.2, 18.5, and 17.3 kilodaltons (kDa) have been identified in the developing human spinal cord and their structures determined through an analysis of cDNA clones of their mRNAs. The 20.2‐kDa MBP mRNA encoded a novel MBP variant, the structure of which has not been reported in any species. Its amino acid sequence was identical with that of the 21.5‐kDa MBP except for a deletion of 11 amino acid residues encoded by… 
Expression of a Novel Transcript of the Myelin Basic Protein Gene
TLDR
The results suggest that the structure of the MBP gene is more complex than originally thought, containing at least two more exons and there appears to be at least one moreMBP gene promoter that directs the synthesis of a subset of MBP mRNAs with a unique 5′‐untranslated region.
Expression of myelin proteins in the developing human spinal cord: Cloning and sequencing of human proteolipid protein cDNA
TLDR
A full‐length clone for the human proteolipid protein (PLP) was isolated from a cDNA library constructed from poly (A)+ RNA isolated from fetal spinal cords obtained at 15–24 weeks of conceptional age, and the deduced amino acid sequence was found to be identical with that of rat PLP.

Organization and expression of the human myelin basic protein gene
TLDR
The human brain contains four isoforms of myelin basic protein (MBP), previously identified by cDNA cloning, and isolated and characterized genomic clones encoding the human MBP gene, which consists of seven exons.
Expression of the myelin basic protein gene locus in neurons and oligodendrocytes in the human fetal central nervous system
TLDR
By using reverse transcriptase‐polymerase chain reaction cloning, eight new members of the Golli gene family of transcripts expressed in the human CNS are identified and it is indicated that their function is quite different from that of the MBPs to which they are closely related.
Protein factors and 5' flanking sequences involved in the expression of the mouse myelin basic protein gene
TLDR
This project was initiated by the isolation of the putative promoter region of the mouse myelin basic protein (MBP) gene and the presence of protein factors specifically binding to the region -609 to -577 was demonstrated by electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA).
Developmental Study of Myelin Basic Protein Variants in Various Regions of Pig Nervous System
TLDR
Results suggest that in the pig NS, the expression of MBP variants may be regulated both regionally and developmentally.
Molecular Biology of Myelin Proteins from the Central Nervous System
TLDR
Most of the dysmyelinating mutants, including those in which the genetic defect is established, appear to exhibit pleiotropy with respect to the expression of other myelin protein genes, and their structures have been established through an analysis of the cDNA clones encoding them.

Identification of three forms of human myelin basic protein by cDNA cloning.
TLDR
Southern blotting studies of human genomic DNA reveal a simple pattern consistent with a single human MBP gene, and the three MBP mRNAs are likely to arise from alternative splicing of a primary humanMBP transcript.
Identification of a cDNA coding for a fifth form of myelin basic protein in mouse.
TLDR
The mouse myelin basic protein (MBP) consists of at least two molecular forms with very similar molecular masses but markedly different primary sequences, and analysis of the sequence of the cDNA clone indicates that excision of exons 2 and 5 of the mouse MBP gene would produce the mRNA encoding this newly described 17-kDa MBP.
Isolation and characterization of a cDNA coding for a novel human 17.3k myelin basic protein (MBP) variant
TLDR
An analysis of the structure of this 17.3K human MBP cDNA suggests that the major pathway for splicing the primary humanMBP gene product may be different from that in the mouse.
In Vitro Synthesis of the Four Mouse Myelin Basic Proteins: Evidence for the Lack of a Metabolic Relationship
TLDR
It is proposed that the four MBPs are the primary translation products of independent brain mRNAs and are not metabolically related.
Expression of Myelin Proteolipid Protein and Basic Protein in Normal and Dysmyelinating Mutant Mice
TLDR
expression of myelin proteins was studied in the brains of 21‐day‐old normal mice and three dysmyelinating mutants and the mutation appears to affect the expression of the MBPs and PLP independently, regardless of their absolute levels of synthesis.
A New Form of Myelin Basic Protein Found in Human Brain
TLDR
A new form of myelin basic protein has a molecular weight of 17,200, calculated from its amino acid composition, which corresponds exactly to the amino acid sequence encoded by exon 5 of the mouse basic protein gene.
Identification of prelarge and presmall basic proteins in mouse myelin and their structural relationship to large and small basic proteins.
TLDR
A new technique to identify antigenically related proteins by radioimmunoassay after sodium dodecyl sulfate/polyacrylamide gel fractionation indicates that each of the four proteins contains all of the antigenic sites present in the small myelin basic protein.
Basic Proteins of Rodent Peripheral Nerve Myelin: Immunochemical Identification of the 21.5K, 18.5K, 17K, 14K, and P2 Proteins
TLDR
Using this method, a component of rodent peripheral nervous system myelin is identified as P2 protein, and a high‐molecular‐weight P2 cross‐reactive protein is reported in rodent brain stem homogenates, but not in central nervous systemMyelin.
