Schwann cell expression of a major myelin glycoprotein in the absence of myelin assembly.

Quiescent Schwann cells in the distal segment of the permanently transected nerve produced basal levels of the major myelin glycoprotein, P0, in the absence of myelin assembly. Low levels of P0 could be detected at 35 days after transection by autoradiographic analysis of radioiodinated lectin binding after protein separation by high-resolution sodium… CONTINUE READING
