Myelin glycoproteins targeted by lead in the rodent model of prolonged exposure.


The aim of these experiments was to discern whether prolonged exposure of rats to lead (Pb) in water, as occurs in typical environmental exposure, affects the structure of myelin in the brain, the protein levels of the myelin glycoproteins myelin associated glycoprotein (MAG) and myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG). During chronic lead intoxication… (More)
