IHC staining of Alexa Fluor® 488 anti-Myelin Protein Zero antibody (clone 58A) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded rat sciatic nerve tissue. Following antigen retrieval using Sodium Citrate H.I.E.R., the tissue was incubated with 2 µg/ml of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C. The slide was mounted with Fluoromount-G™, with DAPI. The image was captured with a 40X objective. Scale Bar: 50 µm

Description

Myelin protein zero (MPZ), is a membrane glycoprotein mainly expressed in the peripheral nervous system (PNS). It is the major structural component of the myelin sheath, and accounts for at least 50% of all proteins in the PNS. MPZ is expressed by Schewann cells. Mutations in MPZ have been associated with myelin deficiency, which may lead to neuropathies including charcot-Marie-Tooth and Dejerine-Sottas diseases.
