The glycoprotein P0 in peripheral gliogenesis

  • 50 Accesses

  • 27 Citations


Recent data show that during development protein zero, P0, the most abundant peripheral nerve myelin protein, is detecable long before myelination. In particular, the expression of P0 in a fraction of migrating neural crest reveals progenitor cell heterogeneity in the developing PNS. Here we review the regulation and potential function of P0 during peripheral gliogenesis.
