To explain how the myelin proteins are involved in the organization and function of the myelin sheath requires knowing their molecular structures. Except for P2 basic protein of PNS myelin, however, their structures are not yet known. As an aid to predicting their molecular folding and possible functions, we have developed a FORTRAN program to analyze the primary sequence data for proteins, and have applied this to the myelin proteins in particular, In this program, propensities for the… 
Bioinformatics of Myelin Membrane Proteins
TLDR
This chapter presents predictions of the membrane topology and the presence/absence of signal peptides in the myelin proteins, and discusses the results in light of published experimental data.
Three-dimensional Structure of Myelin Basic Protein
TLDR
A computational model of myelin basic protein has been constructed based on the premise of a phylogenetically conserved β-sheet backbone and on electron microscopical three-dimensional reconstructions that suggests post-translational modifications that lead to a reduced surface charge could result first in a weakened attachment to the myelin membrane rather than in a gross conformational change of the protein itself.
Expression and purification of the extracellular domain of human myelin protein zero.
TLDR
An improved method to express and purify human P 0-ED (hP0-ED) suitable for crystallographic analysis is described, including several significant improvements to previous protocols, including bacterial growth to approximately 15 OD using orbital shakers and the use of diafiltration, which result in yields of approximately 150 mg highly pure protein per liter of medium.
Three-dimensional Structure of Myelin Basic Protein
TLDR
These results are the first structures achieved directly for this unusual macromolecule, which plays a key role in the development of multiple sclerosis.
Is myelin basic protein crystallizable?
TLDR
This study reports on extensive attempts to crystallize the major 18.5 kDa isoform of MBP, and concludes that as long as its random coil flexibility is not suppressed, MBP and possibly also its isoforms will remain preeminent examples of proteins that cannot be crystallized.
The classic basic protein of myelin--conserved structural motifs and the dynamic molecular barcode involved in membrane adhesion and protein-protein interactions.
TLDR
The myelin basic protein (MBP) family comprises a variety of developmentally-regulated members arising from different transcription start sites, differential splicing, and post-translational modifications, and are post-translationally modified to various degrees by methylation, phosphorylation, and deimination.
The structure and function of central nervous system myelin.
TLDR
The current understanding of the molecular basis of MS as it may relate to the protein and lipid components of myelin, which dictate myelin morphology on the basis of protein-lipid and lipid-lipids interactions, and the relationship, if any, between the protein/lipid components and the destruction ofMyelin in pathological situations is focused on.
Myelin P0‐Glycoprotein: Predicted Structure and Interactions of Extracellular Domain
TLDR
The model shows how the single immunoglobulin‐like domain of P0 can account for distinct structural states of myelin membrane packing by homophilic interactions and can be stabilized further by hydrophobic interactions.

TLDR
These findings demonstrate which features of myelin structure have remained constant and which have become specifically altered as myelin composition changed during evolutionary development.
Phylogenetic Aspects of Myelin Structure
TLDR
Specific and short-range molecular interactions presumably involving proteins appear to define the native separation and to underlie the invariance of the cytoplasmic apposition.
The three‐dimensional structure of P2 myelin protein.
TLDR
The three‐dimensional structure of P2 protein from peripheral nervous system myelin has been determined at 2.7 A resolution by X‐ray crystallography and the relationship of the P2 structure to a family of cytoplasmic, lipid binding proteins is described.
Predicted Folding of β‐Structure in Myelin Basic Protein
TLDR
The cationic side chains of arginine and lysine residues located on the faces of the β‐sheet could provide sites for interaction with phospholipids and other anionic structures on the surface of the myelin lipid bilayer.
The structure of bovine brain myelin proteolipid and its organization in myelin.
TLDR
It is proposed that the cis-membrane domain(s) can promote the formation and stabilization of the multilamellar myelin structure by hydrophobic interaction with the apposite bilayer across the extracellular space.
Orientation of proteolipid protein in myelin: comparison of models with X-ray diffraction measurements.
TLDR
The Stoffel and Hudson models for PLP were more consistent than the Laursen model with the range of pH over which the intermembrane separation at the extracellular apposition is a minimum and fits better the swollen periods observed at alkaline pH.
