is a glycoprotein believed to be important in the process of myelinization of nerves in the central nervous system (CNS).

In humans this protein is encoded by the MOG gene.

It is speculated to serve as a necessary “adhesion molecule” to provide structural integrity to the myelin sheath and is known to develop late on the oligodendrocyte

A Consultant who used to work in the pharmaceutical industry once told me that they used the forced swimming test to trial antidepressants. Rats given antidepressants tended to swim for longer while rats not given antidepressants tended to give up earlier and drown!

P.S. Thanks for the heads up by the way. These are the kind of questions that I hate and am sure others do too. Most of them I have never heard of - typical college questions (Transcriptome my arse!)
