Anti-Myelin Basic Protein Clone 98/P12

The phosphorylation of myelin basic protein (MBP) has been shown to decrease the ability of MBP to aggregate lipid vesicles and consequently destabilising the compact structure of myelin, a destruction that has been observed in demyelinating diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis. (Yon, M et al. 1995) Clone 98/P12 is a useful detector of phosphorylated MBP by binding to Thr98 of human MBP in the phosphorylated state.
