摘要

Myelin basic protein (MBP) and two peptides derived from MBP (MBP1- 44 and MBP152-167) stimulated Schwann cell (SC) proliferation in a cAMP-mediated process. The two mitogenic regions of MBP did not compete with one another for binding to SC suggesting a distinctive SC receptor for each mitogenic peptide. Neutralizing antibodies to the fibroblast growth factor receptor blocked the mitogenic effect of the myelin-related SC mitogen found in the supernatant of myelin-fed macrophages. The binding of 125I-MBP to Schwann cells was specifically inhibited by basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and conversely the binding of 125I-bFGF was competitively inhibited by MBP. These data suggested that the mitogenic effect of one MBP peptide was mediated by a bFGF receptor. The binding of MBP to ganglioside GM1 and the ability of MBP peptides containing homology to the B subunit of cholera toxin (which binds ganglioside GM1) to compete for the binding of a mitogenic peptide (MBP1-44) to SC, identified ganglioside GM1 as a second SC receptor. Based on these results, we conclude that MBP1-44 and MBP152-167 associate with ganglioside GM1 and the bFGF receptor respectively to stimulate SC mitosis.
