|Other Names||Myelin basic protein, MBP, 20 kDa microtubule-stabilizing protein, Myelin A1 protein, MBP|
|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human MBP antibody, clone 10 recognizes the synthetic peptide 82-91 and human and bovine 45-91 but not with whole native MBP molecule (Martensen numbering). This epitope is located in the C terminal region of 82-91 and the corresponding epitope is not present (or exposed) in whole MBP.The clone was selected using synthetic human MBP peptide 82-91 for screening (Groome, N.P. et al1985). Since this work was done a sequence error has been described in the human MBP sequence in this region (Gibson,et al.1984).Although the clone was selected to have a high affinity for 82-91 it appears that this antibody reacts more strongly with the unnatural sequence, rather than the correct human 82-91. In consequence the antibody is not a suitable reagent for sensitive immunoassays of correct human 82-91 as was thought at the time the original paper on this antibody was published.The 91-92 phe-phe bond is believed to be cleaved by demyelinating lesions by Cathepsin D to generate peptides ending in the phe 91 which should react with this monoclonal.|
