Abstract Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) is a myelin-specific protein of the central nervous system (CNS). It is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. The contents of this protein in oligodendrogliocyte membrane is very low (approximately 0.1\% total proteins). Functions of MOG are still unknown. It is considered that MOG is an autoantigen capable to produce a demyelinating multiple sclerosis-like disease in experimental animals. The structure, membrane topology, putative functions and role in demyelinating diseases are considered in this review.
