OMgp / OMG Molecule Background
Oligodendrocyte-myelin glycoprotein (OMG or OMGP), is a cell membrane protein which contains eight LRR (leucine-rich) repeats and one LRRNT domain. OMG / OMGP is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored protein expressed by neurons and oligodendrocytes in the central nervous system (CNS). OMG / OMGP play roles in both the developing and adult central nervous system. OMG / OMGP may also be involved in the formation and maintenance of myelin sheaths.
