Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein Protein Overview: Sequence, Structure, Function and Protein Interaction

Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein Protein Overview

Pham-Dinh et al. (1993) isolated bovine, mouse, and rat MOG cDNAs. The predicted sequences of the mature MOG proteins are highly conserved. All contain 2 transmembrane segments and have an N-terminal, extracellular region with characteristics of an immunoglobulin variable domain. The N terminus shows strong homology with the N terminus of butyrophilin (601610), a protein expressed in the lactating mammary gland. Hilton et al. (1995) cloned a human MOG cDNA encoding a predicted polypeptide containing a signal peptide of 29 amino acids followed by 218 amino acids of mature protein. Like its bovine and murine counterparts, it contains an Ig-like domain and 2 putative transmembrane domains. It has a potential N-linked glycosylation site at asn31. Despite the similar names, oligodendrocyte-myelin glycoprotein (OMG; 164345) is a separate protein encoded within a large intron of the NF1 gene (613113). The 2 glycoproteins are associated specifically with oligodendrocytes and myelin, but have quite different roles in myelinogenesis and are structurally unrelated (Pham-Dinh, 1994). MOG is an intrinsic membrane molecule with 2 transmembrane domains, whereas OMG is anchored in the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane through a glycophospholipid tail. OMG belongs to the family of proteins with a series of tandem leucine-rich repeats, while MOG is a member of the Ig superfamily.
