Human Mouse Rat
Human Proteolipid Protein (PLP, or lipophilin) is a 29,946 dalton protein (277 amino acids) found in myelin of the CNS and PNS. Expressed by oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells, PLP stabilizes myelin by preventing lipid bilayer fusion, and aids in its compaction. Different mutations of the human PLP gene product result in two neurological disorders: Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease and Spastic Paraplegia Type 2.
Chickens were immunized with a synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugate. The sequence of the synthetic peptide was shared between the human and mouse gene products. After repeated injections into the hens, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column, the concentration of the eluate adjusted to 100 µg/mL, and the preparation was filter sterilized.
