The interaction of human myelin basic protein with lipophilin has been demonstrated by affinity chromatography. The interaction was specific since neither basic protein, nor albumin bound to an affinity column consisting of BP bound to agarose. Conversely an albumin affinity column failed to bind BP. The pH dependency of the interaction correlated with the known pK for histidine. By the use of large peptides formed by tryptophanyl cleavage by BNPS-skatole, peptide 1–117 bound to the BP affinity… 
Myelin proteolipid protein, basic protein, the small isoform of myelin‐associated glycoprotein, and p42MAPK are associated in the Triton X‐100 extract of central nervous system myelin
TLDR
Lipid analysis revealed that the PLP–MBP–S‐MAG coimmunoprecipitated with some phospholipids and sulfatide but not cholesterol or galactosylceramide, indicating that the lipid/protein ratio is low, and the complex had a high density.
Neuroantigens in EAE
TLDR
This chapter reviews briefly the biology of myelin and describes the major CNS myelin proteins, the potential neuroantigens in EAE and the enzymes involved in their synthesis.

Interactions of free and immobilized myelin basic protein with anionic detergents.
TLDR
Data from the interaction of free and immobilized myelin basic protein with sodium deoxycholate (DOC) and sodium dodecyl sulfate (NaDodSO4) support a model in which the detergent cross-links and causes precipitation of MBP-anionic detergent complexes.

Resistance of lipophilin, a hydrophobic myelin protein, to denaturation by urea and guanidinium salts.
TLDR
The combined evidence suggests that the extraordinary resistance of lipophilin to these denaturants is due to the presence of an impervious hydrophobic core.
Immune lysis of reconstituted myelin basic protein--lipid vesicles and myelin vesicles.
TLDR
Responsibility was also obtained with the myelin vesicles, however, indicating that some determinants of BP can be recognized on the surface of the bilayer in isolated myelin by anti-BP.
COMPARATIVE STUDIES OF GUINEA PIG AND BOVINE MYELIN BASIC PROTEINS. PARTIAL CHARACTERIZATION OF CHEMICALLY DERIVED FRAGMENTS AND THEIR ENCEPHALITOGENIC ACTIVITIES IN LEWIS RATS
TLDR
Tests of encephalitogenic activity in Lewis rats showed that two fragments from both species were much less active, on a molar basis, than the uncleaved protein, while examination of the bovine fragments revealed activity at least as high as that of the respective uncleaved proteins.
The isolation and characterization of an acid-soluble protein from myelin.
TLDR
Myelin was isolated from central white matter of beef and human brains and revealed more than 20% dibasic amino acids, but little methionine and no cystine, and was rapidly hydrolyzed by trypsin.
Myelin lipophilin-induced demyelinating disease of the central nervous system
TLDR
Both lipophilin and MBP induced and elicited delayed-type hypersensitivity in animals challenged with respective antigens, and tryptophan, an essential component of the MBP-determinant for disease in guinea pigs, is required for the encephalitogenicity of lipophils.

TLDR
Fractions of bovine white matter, prepared by the methods of Folch and Lees, were studied for chemical composition and for their ability to produce experimental allergic encephalomyelitis in rabbits to provide a satisfactory interpretation of the findings of Goldstein et al.
