Proteins of Myelin

  • Marjorie B. Lees

Abstract

The protein composition of myelin is relatively simple compared to that of other biological membranes, with a limited number of polypeptides constituting most of the myelin proteins. In both the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS), the major proteins are myelin-specific and are found only in myelin and myelin-forming cells. The importance, however, of the quantitatively minor proteins should not be overlooked in terms of their contribution to myelinogenesis and to the maintenance of the metabolic and structural integrity of the multilamellar membranes.
