MBP

Abbreviation for major basic protein.

mbp

abbreviation for mean blood pressure.

MBP

A gene on chromosome 18q23 that encodes myelin basic protein, a major component of the myelin sheath of oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells, which is also present in the bone marrow and in the immune system where it induces T-cell proliferation.

Molecular pathology
Reduction in the surface charge of MBP may result in a weakened attachment to the myelin membrane and play a role in demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
