An increasing number of four-transmembrane proteins has been found to be associated with CNS and PNS myelin. Some of these proteins play crucial roles in the development and maintenance of the nervous system. In the CNS, proteolipid protein (PLP) is mutated in the myelin disorder Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease and in spastic paraplegia, while in the PNS, peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP22) and connexin32 (C x 32) are culprit genes in the most frequent forms of hereditary peripheral neuropathies… CONTINUE READING
