Tubulin polymerization-promoting protein (TPPP) is an unfolded brain-specific protein that interacts with the tubulin/microtubule system, and is enriched in human pathological brain inclusions (1). TPPP can induce aggregation of alpha-synuclein, and can accumulate in oligodendroglial cell bodies containing fibrillized alpha-synuclein multiple system atrophy (MSA), a neurodegenerative disease. TPPP is a constituent of myelin and a high-affinity ligand for myelin basic protein (MBP), and has been shown to colocalize with MBP in myelin in normal human brains (2).
