Myelin basic protein (MBP) is a major constituent of the myelin sheath of oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells in the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system, respectively. It is most abundant in hemopoietic system and contains seven exons distributed over 32-34 kb. MBP isolated from MS brain may differ in charge microheterogeneity which would affect antigenic determinants. MBP is mapped to chromosome 18q22-23. Failure in this gene expression would be correlated in the central white matter with extrapyramidal system degeneration signs. Moreover, it is a candidate autoantigen in the disease multiple sclerosis.
