Chemical Myelin Proteolipid Protein

Name Myelin Proteolipid Protein
Equivalent Terms Folch Lees Protein | Folch-Lees Protein | Folch PI Proteolipid Protein | Folch-PI Proteolipid Protein | Myelin PLP | PLP, Myelin | Protein, Folch-Lees | Protein, Folch-PI Proteolipid | Protein, Myelin Proteolipid | Proteolipid Protein, Folch-PI | Proteolipid Protein, Myelin
Definition A myelin protein that is the major component of the organic solvent extractable lipoprotein complexes of whole brain. It has been the subject of much study because of its unusual physical properties. It remains soluble in chloroform even after essentially all of its bound lipids have been removed. (From Siegel et al., Basic Neurochemistry, 4th ed, p122)
