Myelin-deficient rat: a point mutation in exon III (A----C, Thr75----Pro) of the myelin proteolipid protein causes dysmyelination and oligodendrocyte death.


The expression of the proteolipid protein (PLP) gene of the myelin deficient (md) and normal rat was studied during the myelination period. The sizes of the PLP transcripts (1.6 and 3.2 kb) in the md and normal rat were identical although the md PLP messenger RNA level was extremely reduced as shown by in situ hybridization and Northern blot hybridization… (More)
