Product name:MBP ELISA Kit
Myelin basic protein (MBP) is a protein believed to be important in the process of myelination of nerves in the central nervous system (CNS). Myelin Basic Protein (MBP) is the major constituent of the CNS myelin synthesized by oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells. MBP, PLP (proteolipid proteins) and MOG (myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein) are potential primary encephalitogenic target antigens in multiple sclerosis.
The pool of MBP in the central nervous system is very diverse, with several splice variants being expressed and a large number of post-translational modifications on the protein, which include phosphorylation, methylation, deamidation and citrullination.
