Two peripheral myelin components, galactocerebroside (GalC) and myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG), are known to be expressed early in Schwann cell differentiation, prior to the formation of definitive myelin segments containing compacted membrane. To discern the relative roles of these myelin components, cultures of Schwann cells and dorsal root ganglion neurons were treated with antigalactocerebroside mAbs in order to remove GalC from the Schwann cell surface (Ranscht et al., 1987).
