Conserved Site

Myelin P0 protein, conserved site (IPR019738)

Short name: Myelin_P0_CS


The P0 protein is a major structural glycoprotein of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) myelin, which probably plays an important role for the formation and the maintenance of myelin structure; it is well conserved across species [PMID: 1285424, PMID: 1710279]. P0 is a protein of about 28 Kd that consists of three domains: a N-terminal extracellular domain of about 125 residues which seems to form a V-type immunoglobulin domain; a transmembrane region, and a cytoplasmic C-terminal domain of about 70 residues which contains many positively charged residues and which is a substrate of some serine protein kinases.

This entry represents a signature pattern located in the C-terminal part of the cytoplasmic domain that contains many positive charges and serine residues that could be phosphorylated.
