Abstract

Oligodendroglia, isolated in bulk from dissected white matter from lamb brain, can now be maintained in culture. The cells actively synthesize both cerebrosides and sulfatides, lipids found concentrated in myelin, as well as other myelin components. Thus this provides a useful model to study myelin assembly in vitro.
