CHARACTERISTIC COMPOSITION OF MYELIN 56 The composition of myelin is well characterized because it can be isolated in high yield and purity by subcellular fractionation 56 Central nervous system myelin is enriched in certain lipids 56 Peripheral and central nervous system myelin lipids are qualitatively similar 58 Central nervous system myelin contains some unique proteins 58 Peripheral nervous system myelin also contains unique proteins 63 Some classically defined myelin proteins are common to… CONTINUE READING
