Myelin Basic Protein (68-82), guinea pig,(C71H113N23O28) is a peptide with the sequence Tyr-Gly-Ser-Leu-Pro-Gln-Lys-Ser-Gln-Arg-Ser-Gln-Asp-Glu-Asn, MW= 1736.79. Myelin basic protein (MBP) is a protein believed to be important in the process of myelination of nerves in the nervous system. Knockout mice deficient in MBP showed decreased amounts of CNS myelination and have developed a progressive disorder characterized by tremors, seizures, and early death. MBP research has centered on its role in demyelinating diseases, in particular, multiple sclerosis (MS). Several studies have uncovered the role of antibodies against MBP in the pathogenesis of MS.] Some studies have linked a genetic predisposition to MS to the MBP gene, though a majority have not. Some recent work has shown that inoculating an animal with MBP to generate an immune response against it increases blood–brain barrier permeability.
