Myelin Basic Protein Information for Pathologists
MBP is important in myelination of nerves (reported in both central and peripheral nerves). Myelination of nerves and the formation of the myelin sheath is critical to rapid conduction of neural impulses along axons. Several studies have suggested that auto antibodies against MBP are linked to development of multiple sclerosis (MS).
Notable Clinical Features:
Myelin Basic protein in CSF above levels of 4 ng/ml is indicative myelin breakdown which is linked to MS. MBP staining is reported as a sensitive marker of myelenation.
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Neuromas, Neurofi bromas, and Neurogenic Sarcomas have been reported as staining postive for MBP. However, other spindle-cell neoplasms are typically negative. MBP staining of Granular-cell tumors is useful in supportinga Schwann-cell derivation of these lesions. Unlike other nervous system proteins such as GFAP and S-100, MBP has not been demonstrated in melanocytes or tumors derived from melanocytes.
