Plasmolipin is a plasma membrane proteolipid which has recently been described as a component of myelin (Cochary et al.: Journal of Neurochemistry 55:602-610, 1990). The present study reports the expression and localization of plasmolipin in primary glial cultures and secondary oligodendrocyte cultures. Double-label immunofluorescence showed that plasmolipin was expressed by galactocerebroside (GC)-positive oligodendrocytes, but was absent from astrocytes, characterized by their positive… CONTINUE READING
