Gene: Mbp (myelin basic protein) Mus musculus
Symbol: Mbp
Name: myelin basic protein
Description: Exhibits calmodulin binding activity and protease binding activity. Involved in several processes, including myelination; response to toxic substance; and sensory perception of sound. Localizes to several cellular components, including compact myelin; internode region of axon; and neuronal cell body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in multiple sclerosis. Is expressed in several structures, including gonad; hemolymphoid system; lung; nervous system; and nose. Orthologous to human MBP (myelin basic protein).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
