Only a few proteins are known to be exclusively expressed in central nervous system (CNS) myelin. A novel surface membrane protein expressed only in CNS myelin and oligodendrocytes of higher vertebrates has been identified by a monoclonal antibody. This CNS myelin/oligodendrocyte-specific protein, MOSP, has a molecular weight of 48 kDa and a pI of approximately 6.7. In the presence of the monoclonal antibody, MOSP remains on the surface of cultured oligodendrocytes but becomes associated with… CONTINUE READING
