Marburg's variant of multiple sclerosis correlates with a less compact structure of myelin basic protein.

Abstract

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease in which the myelin sheath of the central nervous system is degraded, and the 18.5 kDa isoform of myelin basic protein (MBP) is reduced in cationicity. In a unique case of acute, fulminating MS (Marburg's variant), MBP is considerably less cationic than MBP from both normal, and chronic MS-afflicted… (More)
