Human PLP (also known as lipophilin) is a 29,946 dalton protein (277 amino acids) found in myelin of the CNS and PNS. Expressed by oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells, PLP stabilizes myelin by preventing lipid bilayer fusion, and aids in its compaction. Different mutations of the human PLP gene product result in two neurological disorders -- Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease and Spastic Paraplegia type 2.
