Myelin consists of 80% lipid fat and 20% protein. It is an electrically-insulating phospholipid layer that surrounds the axons of many neurons. Myelin basic protein (MBP) is a protein responsible for myelination of the neurons of the central nervous system.
Biotinylated MBP could enhance the efficiency of immobilization of the substrate on an avidin-coated microplate and the substrate will be readily accessible for the kinase activity through a large molecule avidin as a spacer.
The Myelin basic protein is used as substrate for Kinase Assays.
