Applications & Dilutions

Applications Tested Dillution Protocol Note
Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
30 min at RT. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires heating tissue sections in 10mM Tris with 1mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 45 min at 95°C followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes


Myelin basic protein (MBP) is the second most abundant protein in central nervous system (CNS) myelin: it comprises 30% of the total protein and about 10% of the dry weight of myelin. It is the only structural protein found so far to be essential for formation of CNS myelin, and has been called the executive molecule of myelin . MBP can interact with a number of polyanionic proteins including actin, tubulin, calmodulin, and clathrin, and negatively charged lipids, and acquires structure on binding to them. It may act as a membrane actin-binding protein, which might allow it to participate in transmission of extracellular signals to the cytoskeleton in oligodendrocytes and tight junctions in myelin. MBP may be applicable as a marker for oligodendrogliomas. rMBP/9301 is used in clinical diagnostics to detect MBP levels or myelination in human MBP. rMBP/9301 is used in a two-site ELISA with clone MBP/4273. Both are used interchangeably as capture and detection antibody.

  • The classic group of MBP isoforms (isoform 4-isoform 14) are with PLP the most abundant protein components of the myelin membrane in the CNS. They have a role in both its formation and stabilization. The smaller isoforms might have an important role in remyelination of denuded axons in multiple sclerosis. The non-classic group of MBP isoforms (isoform 1-isoform 3/Golli-MBPs) may preferentially have a role in the early developing brain long before myelination, maybe as components of transcriptional complexes, and may also be involved in signaling pathways in T-cells and neural cells. Differential splicing events combined with optional post-translational modifications give a wide spectrum of isomers, with each of them potentially having a specialized function. Induces T-cell proliferation.
