oligodendrocyte

Encyclopedia

  • Oligodendrocytes (from Greek, meaning cells with a few branches), or oligodendroglia (Greek, few tree glue),[1] are a type of brain cell. Oligodendrocytes form the electrical insulation around the axons of CNS nerve cells. — “Oligodendrocyte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • The principle function of oligodendrocytes is to provide support to axons and to produce the Myelin sheath, which insulates and lowers the effective capacitance of axons. Oligodendrocytes, unlike Schwann cells of the PNS, form segments of myelin sheaths of numerous neurons at once. — “Oligodendrocyte precursor cell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein (MOG) is a glycoprotein believed to be important in the process of myelinization of nerves in the central nervous system (CNS) to provide structural integrity to the myelin sheath and is known to develop late on the oligodendrocyte.[4]. — “Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein - Wikipedia, the free”, en.wikipedia.org
