Background: Oligodendrocyte Marker O4
Oligodendrocytes are myelinating cells in the central nervous system (CNS) and form the myelin sheath of axons to support rapid nerve conduction. Oligodendrocyte Marker O4 is an antigen on the surface of oligodendrocyte progenitors (1, 2). It has been commonly used as the earliest recognized marker specific for the oligodendroglial lineage (3-8).
